LUTHERAN CHURCH I N AMERICA 55 

PROCEEDINGS 

of the 

Fifth Annual Convention 

of the 

North Carolina Synod 

of the 

Lutheran Church In America 

OPENING SERVICE 

(Monday Evening, May 2, 1966, 7:30 P.M.) 

The Opening Service of the Fifth Convention of the North Carolina Synod of 
the Lutheran Church in America (The One Hundred and Sixty Second Annual 
Convention of the Synod since its organization in 1803) was held in the Bethany 
Evangelical Lutheran Church, the convention church, 1632 Main Avenue Drive, 
N.W., Hickory, North Carolina, the Rev. G. Dwight Conrad, pastor, Monday 
evening, May 2, 1966, at 7:30 o'clock. 

The Order of Service of the Service Book and Hymnal (First Setting) includ- 
ing the Brief Order of Public Confesson and the Service of Holy Communion was 
conducted by the Rev. J. Wilford Lyerly, M.A., Secretary of Synod, assisted in the 
administration of the Holy Sacrament by the following: 

The Rev. G. Dwight Conrad, host pastor 

The Rev. L. Boyd Hamm, D.D., of the host church 

The Rev. Donald E. Hanberry, Dean, Central District 

The Rev. Robert L. Dasher, Secretary, Eastern District 

The Rev. Paul L. Morgan, Dean, Northern District 

The Rev. John L. Yost, Jr., D.D., Northwestern District 

The Rev. C. Marion Starr, Dean, Southern District 

The Rev. Robert F. Shelby, Jr., Dean, Southwestern District 

Participating also in the Service was Larry Isenhour, acolyte, and Glenn 
Shoaf, lay assistant for communion. 

The convention sermon "Who has Won?", resounding the Easter note of 
victory and hope, was delivered by the Rev. George R. Whittecar, D.D., President 
of Synod. The texts quoted were: "In the world you shall have tribulation, but 
be of good cheer, I have overcome the world", (St. John 16:33), and "This is 
the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith", (1 John 5: 4b). 

In view of the growing secularism of the day, President Whittecar said that 
it is easy to concede victory to the aggressive forces of evil that are fighting 
for the dominatioon of man's soul, and admit that the battle in which Christians 
are engaged is lost. However, Christians need not despair, he said, because of 
the victory which Christ has already won. His victory becomes our victory 
through faith in Him. We, as Christians, need only to claim and proclaim His 
victory in the midst of life's raging battles. 



56 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



He cited evidences of victory in the lives of mankind to show that Christians 
are in a winning battle. With Christ in the midst of the battle, we cannot lose. 

The Holy Communion was administered to 406 communicants. 

Special music "Built on the Rock" was provided by the Senior choir of 
Bethany Lutheran Church, under the direction of Kenneth Turbyfill. Harry 
Wells, organist, presided at the console. 

The offering was designated as a special gift to CAMPUS, the campaign for 
funds to provide a more effective ministry and eloquent witness to Lutheran 
students on non-Lutheran colleges and university campuses. 

The Service ended with the recessional number, "Thine is the Glory", No. 
566 in the Service Book and Hymnal. 



First Meeting 

(Tuesday Morning, Moy 3, 1956-9:00 A.M.- 12:00 Noon) 
DEVOTIONS 

Devotions were conducted by the Rev. R. Douglas Fritz, pastor of St. John's 
Lutheran Church, Salisbury, convention chaplain, consisting of The Matins and 
the first in a series of meditations on the general theme of "Devotions". He out- 
lined three reasons for devotions at a synod convention so crowded with pressing 
business, as follows: "Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that 
build it; except you become as little children, you cannot enter into the kingdom 
of heaven; and you shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon 
you." 

OPENING ORDER: Using the Order for the Opening of Synods, President Whitte- 
car declared the Fifth Annual Convention of the North Carolina Synod of the 
Lutheran Church in America to be in session. 

CREDENTIALS AND ENROLLMENT: The Rev. J. L. Peeler, chairman of the 
Committee on Credentials and Enrollment, reported that 208 clerical and 146 
lay delegates were registered at this hour. President Whittecar announced that 
the reported number constituted a quorum, and that the convention was ready 
for the dispatch of business. 

CONVENTION PROGRAM: The Rev. Wilford Lyerly, secretary, presented the 
following amendments to the Convention program as recommended in the Sup- 
plement to the Report of the Executive Board in Items IV-A and B: 

A. That Item 5-b, amendments to constitutions, scheduled for Tuesday 
morning, be stricken as an item from the report of the Executive Board and be 
submitted to the convention through the Committee on Reports of Officers and 
Staff; and 

B. That copies of the report of the Committee on Pastors' Salary Study be 
made available to convention delegates at the time of the distribution of con- 
vention ballots on Tuesday evening in the P. E. Monroe Auditorium, Lenoir Rhyne 
College, and that the report be presented to the convention on Thursday morn- 
ing following the report on Pensions as new Item 12, re-numbering the other 
items. 

On motion of the Rev. Walter Yount, the Program and Order of Business as 
amended was approved.

SPECIAL EVENTS 

Lenoir Rhyne College Dinner 

LLM Dinner 

Seminary Auxiliary 

Tea for Pastors' Wives 
In answer to Pastor Walter Yount's question to the status of retired pastors, 
President Whittecar clarified the issue by saying that all ministers on the roll of 
synod, including parish pastors, non parish pastors, and retired pastors had equal 
rights and privileges at conventions of synod. 

There seemed to be no apparent reason for designating a bar of the synod 
at this time. The entire church nave was ruled within voting bounds. If found 
necessary later in the convention, the president would reserve a space for the 
visitors. 

Items From Report of Executive Board 

Bachman S. Brown, a member of the Executive Board, presented Recom- 
mendation One of the Executive Board: 

1 . That Synod suspend for this convention the operation of By-Law Sec- 
tion 1 -D-3, which reads: 

"Reports from institutions and committees shall be limited to 30 
minutes unless the occasion demands an extension of time granted 
by the president. Greetings shall be limited to five minutes." (See Item 
VI-B-4a). 

On motion of the Rev. Paul Morgan, recommendation one was adopted, and 
by-law Secton l-D-3 was suspended for this convention. 

Mr. Brown then presented recommendation two of the Executive Board, serv- 
ing notice that synod amend by-law Section l-D-3, by strikng the words "thirty 
minutes" and inserting the words, "the time alloted by the Executive Board, 
which would cause the by-law to read: 



60 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD

alloted by the Executive Board unless the occasion demands an ex- 
tension of time granted by the president. Greetings shall be limited to

Conrad for his twenty five years of service as pastor of Bethany Church and for 
his contributions to the civic and religious life of the City of Hickory. 



Report of the President 



Fathers and Brethren in Christ Jesus: 

It is with gratitude to God for the privilege of serving in the Church in 
this office that I make this annual report of my activities as President of the 
Synod. The ties of faith and love that bind us together as Christians, and in 
particuler ways as ministers and congregations, are gifts of God that are al- 
ways to be cherished. The response that has been given to my leadership and 
the expressions of confidence that have come from both clergy and laity have 
been most encouraging. 

This office requires that I function in the role of the pastor, the representa- 
tive of the Church, and the administrator of the organization of the Synod. 



61 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

As pastor to pastors and general overseer of the congregations, I have rec- 
orded at least 223 personal and 83 group conferences. I visited 38 congrega- 
tions for worship and preached 31 sermons. I sought to minister to our clergy and 
their families in times of sickness or distress. I administered the sacrament of 
holy baptism to one child. 

As chief representative of the Church in North Carolina, I officiated at 
the ordination of ministers, presided at the organization of a congregation, ap- 
pointed vice pastors, conferred with councils or committees toward the calling 
of pastors, installed or appointed others to install pastors, led in the dedication 
of church or college buildings, the blessings of parsonage or parish houses, and 
site blessings and ground breakings as listed below. 

I also participated as a trustee of Lenoir Rhyne College, the Lutheran 
Theological Southern Seminary, Lutheridge, Inc., the Lutheran Children's Home 
of the South, Lowman Home, and the North Carolina Lutheran Homes. I at- 
tended the annual conference of the presidents of the synods of the Lutheran 
Church in America and conferred on common interests with presidents of the 
Southern Synods. I represented the synod at a conference called by the Board 
of Pensions at Minneapolis, and in the annual conference on home mission plan- 
ning with representatives of the American Lutheran Church and the Lutheran 
Church-Missouri Synod. On special invitation, I attended a meeting of the Board 
of Social Ministry of the church held in Atlanta. 

I have functioned as a member of each of the five operational committees 
and the examining committee and met with other committees whenever I could ar- 
range to do so. I presided over meetings of the Executive Board, the Committee 
of Deans, and the Committee on American Missions. I represented the synod as 
a member of our delegation to the North Carolina Council of Churches. I parti- 
cipated in 12 District meetings and addressed at least 17 meetings of auxiliaries 
and other groups. 

As administrator of the synod's organization I have been assisted by very 
competent persons. I must give special words of appreciation to Dr. E. L. Misen- 
heimer, assistant to the President, Pastor J. Wilford Lyerly, secretary of synod, 
Charles S. Heilig, treasurer, Pastor Brady Y. Faggart, Jr., secretary of Christian 
Educaton, and the Rev. David F. Johnson, regional secretary of the Board of 
American Missions. Each of these men has contributed richly of his special 
talents, insights, and judgments, without stint of time or energy, so that the 
boards and committees have been well guided and the congregations have been 
served in varied ways. My personal thanks go to each of these associates for their 
support and to the synod for making each of them available to us all. 

In addition, I express appreciation for the gracious and efficient service 
of the secretarial and custodial staff at the Church House, at Salisbury, Mrs. O. 
L. Casey, Mrs. R. M. Kline, and Mrs. Charles Roberts, office secertaries, Miss 
Rose Miller and Mrs. Gray Hampton, bookkeepers in the treasurer's office, 
and Mrs. Mildred Brown, housekeeper. Each of these devoted persons goes be- 
yond the minimal requiremints of her work in order to be helpful to other staff 
persons and persons who call at the Church House. They are all dedicated 
servants of the Church. 



LUTHERAN CHURC H IN AMERIC A 63 

The retirement of Miss Rose Miller as bookkeeper in the office of the 
treasurer on February 28, 1966, was noted by the Church House staff with a 
supper in her honor. Miss Miller had served this synod and its predecessor as 
assistant to Charles S. Heilig, treasurer, and to his father, James D. Hc-ilig, 
before him, for 40 years. Mrs. Gary Hampton has been secured as her suc- 
cessor. 

This is the last call to congregations to adopt constitutions that are not in 
conflict with the constitutions or by-laws of the Lutheran Church in America or the 
constitution of this synod, as required by Article Eleven, Section I, 1 , of the 
synod's constitution. The four-year period in which to make this adjustment

Report of the Assistant to the President 

Dear Brethren in Christ: 

It has been a privilege and a joy to serve the synod for another year in 
the office of Assistant to the President. Since the last convention of synod we 
have had an eventful and satisfying year filled with many achievements and 
accomplishments in our synod's program and progress. 

I want to express my appreciation to the President of Synod, under whose 
direction I work, for his wise counsel and guidance, his gracious spirit and his 
challenging encouragemennt. Also I want to thank the other officers and staff 
of synod, the Executive Board, the chairmen and members of the three Opera- 
tional Committees which I serve as staff worker, and the pastors and lay leaders 
of the congregations for the splendid cooperation given me in my office, par- 
ticularly in our Evangelism, Social Ministry and Stewardship thrusts, since the last 
convention of synod. All of this has made a "mountain of work" a most pleasant 
and enjoyable task. 

ACTIVITIES SINCE THE LAST CONVENTION OF SYNOD 

I would like to report my activities in the office of Assistant to the President 
of Synod under the following six headings: 

1. ADMINISTRATIVE DUTIES AS ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT: Since 
the 1965 Convention of Synod the folowing official acts have been perform- 
ed by the Assistant to the President. II Installations, Synodical Representa- 
tive at 12 Congregational Meetings, Synodical Representative at 9 Campus 
Briefing Sessions and Cluster Rallies, two Groundbreaking Services, two Par- 
sonage Dedications, two Anniversary Services, two Services of Blessing for 
Church Appointments. In addition, this staff worker has preached 60 ser- 
mons, served as vice-pastor at Calvary, Spencer, for seven months, conduct- 
ed two baptismal services, one funeral service, one wedding service, eight 
communion services, given 21 addresss, conducted six Evangelism Work- 
shops and 1 1 Stewardship Workshops, held a countless number of conferences 
with individual pastors and lay leaders, and reported regularly to the Execu- 
tive Board providing pertinent studies and information. 

It is the Assistant to the President's responsibility to arrange for guest 
preachers each Sunday in vacant parishes as well as for parish pastors who 
need a supply. This is a service which seems to have met a real need and 
for which much appreciation has been expressed. The Assistant to the 
President serves as purchasing agent for supplies and equipment for the 
Church House and reviews all expense vouchers, bills, and invoices which 
come to the N. C. Synod before they are passed on to the treasurer for pay- 
ment. 

Two special committees have claimed some of the Assistant's time dur- 
ing the year. They are the Central Committee for Lenoir Rhyne's 75th An- 
niversary celebration which he servs as chairman of the sub-committee on 
Visual Presentations, and the "Pastors' Salaries" Committee which he serves 
as co-ordinator. 

2. L. C. A. CONFERENCES: The Assistant to the President has participated 
in three L.C.A. Conferences since the last convention of Synod as follows: 
September 21-23, 1965, LCA Social Ministry Conference, Washington, D. 
C; November 4-5, 1965, Regional Evangelism Conference, Salisbury, N. C; 
January 17-19, 1966 LCA Evangelism Conference. 



76 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAR O LINA SYNOD 

3. EVANGELSSM: One of the three areas of responsibility in the Assistant to 
the President's job analysis is Evangelism. As Synodical Evangelism Director 
this staff worker has planned the agenda for three meetings of the Opera- 
tional Committee: directed a series of four overnight Missionary Nature and 
Structure of the Congregation Retreats attended by 170 parish pastors; pre- 
pared suggested reports on Evangelism for District Meetings; presided over 
three meetings of the planning committee for another Carolinas' Evangelism 
Conference projected for 1967; edited and distributed to pastors the series 
of lectures given by the Rev. James R. Stephenson at the MN5C retreats. 

The Assistant to the President directed two area "Witness Where You 
Are" Evangelism Missions involving 69 congregations in the Central and 
Southern Districts. This direction included securing the 69 missioners, con- 
ducting two briefing sessions in each district preparatory to the mission 
week, editing a guide book distributed to all congregational leaders, handling 
orders for materials, scheduling movies, "Just A Stranger" and "Born to Wit- 
ness" for participating congregations, and directing overnight retreats for 
host pastors and missioners. 

Implementation of the committee plans for introducing MNSC to the 
congregations has been a responsibility of this office. An outline of proce- 
dure and a listing of available materials for MNSC has been mailed to each 
pastor with the result that 67 are planning a joint council and evangelism 
committee meeting to consider his study. 

Another responsibility in Evangelism assumed by the office of Assistant 
to the President is the synod's Contact and Referral Service to help keep up 
with our "moving Lutherans." 

Other activities in Evangelism have included counseling with pastors and 
congregational committees; preparing and tabulating the Evangelism Progress 
Reports; and reporting to the LCA Commission on North Carolina plans and 
progress. 

4. STEWARDSHIP: A second of the three areas of responsibility in the Assist- 
ant to the President's portfolio is Stewardship. He directed a major thrust in 
Stewardship promotion in 1965 to encourage the EMV with a series of six dis- 
trict workshops for councilmen and stewardship committeemen. The new 
"Stewardship Development Kit" was introduced and demonstrated at these 
workshops which more than 710 church leaders attended. 

The Assistant to the President is serving as chairman of the committee 
appointed last October to mobilize a "task force" to call on each church 
council in the May to September period. The theme for these visits is 
"Calling - to Set the Work Forward" and the purpose is to accent the mission 
of the church and to define apportionment as the extension of the ministry of 
the congregation throughout the world. 

During the fall this staff worker was invited to assist more congregations 
than usual with planning stewardship programs, to speak at congregational 
dinners, and to conoduct training sessions for EMV teams. He conducted a 
30 minute session with representatives of congregations giving less than 50% 
of their apportionment at the six district meetings last fall. 

During the year many stewardship studies have been prepared by this 
staff worker both for congregations and the synod. These studies have been 
shared with the Executive Board, the Stewardship Committee, and the con- 
gregations. He has designed and distributed Apportionment Report Cards, 
Stewardship Progress Reports for the congregations, and special sheets show- 
ing how $100 of apportionment is spent. 

He has served as chairman of the Executive Board's Finance and Budget 
Committee and has conducted extensive surveys to assist in helping the 1967 
proposed Synod Budget reflect accurately the needs of our ministry together. 

His office has assumed the task of comouting the apportionment for the 
congregations of the Synod and preparing the tables showing how the con- 
gregations' apportionment are prorated among the budgeted causes. 

The Assistant to the President gave a series of six lectures on "The Role 
of the Christicn Steward" at Lutheridge in connection with the Bible Con- 
ference Week last August. 

5. SOCIAL MINISTRY: A third of the three major areas of responsibility 
assigned the Assistant to the President is Social Ministry. Serving as staff 
worker for this operational committee, he has prepared the agenda for three 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 77 



meetings; prepared guide sheets showing Social Ministry concerns which 
were used as discussion starters and take home items in connection with the 
spring district "Congregational Program Consultations"; represented the 
President of Synod at three meetings of the Advisory Committee for the Lu- 
theran Institutional Chaplain, Durham Area. 

At present he is serving as convenor and chairman of an inter-Lutheran 
Committee to appoint stand-by and contact pastoral representatives at the 
33 state institutions. 

While Social Ministry cannot be structured as are Evangelism and Stew- 
ardship, each year conregations are becoming more alert to opportunities for 
meeting human needs out in the community and more congregational com- 
mittees are at work providing resources and leadership to meet those needs. 
6. Joint Stewardship, Evangelism, Social Ministry Projects: 

a. Every month seven people in each congregation receive the Stewardship 
Evangelism Bulletin edited by the Assistant to the President. 

b. Each year this staff worker directs the Workshop for New Pastors and 
their Wives, sponsored by the 5 operational committees and the auxili- 
aries. 

c. The Triennial Stewardship, Evangelism, Social Ministry School is directed 
by this staff worker and is scheduled for July 29-30, 1966 at Lenoir 
Rhyne College. 

d. Evangelism and Social Ministry personnel are cooperating in another 
joint Evangelism Conference sponsored by the North and South Carolina 
Synods scheduled for 1967. The Assistant to the President is serving as 
chairman of this 16 member planning committee. 

CONCLUSION 

This variety of concerns makes the office of the Assistant to the President 
an interesting one with a fresh and challenging schedule for each day of the year. 
These three vital fields, Stewardship, Evangelism, Social Ministry place this staff 
worker in the heart and center of parish life and activities. I am most happy for 
opportunities to assist in planning and implementing parish programs and to make 
available to congregational leaders the resources of synod and L.C.A. experience 
in these three areas of church work. 

I am looking forward to another year with you in this exciting work which 
has no ceiling, no stopping place, and about which "it is finished" can never be 
writen, for as long as the church is alive and serving it will be concerned with 
improving its stewardship, its evangelism and its social ministry. My prayer is 
that 1966 may be another year of "team work" toward this end. Amen

CENTRAL DISTRICT 

Two meetings of the district have been held since the last meeting of the 
Synod. They were both well attended and well received. 

The Fall Meeting was held at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Troutman, 
North Carolina on November 8, 1965. The meeting began at 10:00 A.M. with 
the celebration of Holy Communion, the Rev. Dr. George R. Whittecar, Synod 
President, Celebrant; the District Dean, preacher; and the District Secretary, 
Liturgist. 

Following the service the Dean's Report, and Operational Committee re- 
ports were heard. Reports were also heard from the Camp Committee and the 
Committee on Historical Work of the Synod. 

Immediately after lunch, stewordship discussion groups were led by Dr. 
George R. Whittecar, Rev. Clyde A. Misenheimer, and Rev. Ernest L. Misen- 
heimer. 

The afternoon program was in the form of a panel discussion presentation 
on the theme, "Three Years of Working Together." It was an evaluation and 
reflection on the function of the church since the 1962 organization of the 
Lutheran Church in America. The panel members were: Rev. R. Douglas Fritz,

who presented the view point of the pastor; Dr. George R. Whittecar, who 
presented the view point of the Synod; and Mr. Paul Ritchie, who presented 
the view point of a layman. Dean, Donald E. Hanberry served as moderator. 

Organ Lutheran Church, Salisbury, North Carolina, was the site of the 
Spring District Meeting held on February 14, 1966 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. 

Operational Committee Representatives were elected and progrom con- 
sultations were held. Dr. James M. Frye, who had been appointed to fill an 
unexpired term on the Evangelism Committee during the year, was elected to 
serve for a three year term and Mrs. Eugene O. Casper was elected as district 
representative to the Parish Education Committee as a new member. These were 
the only changes made in the District Cabinet during the year. 

Cabinet meetings were held on August 31, 1965, at the Church House, Salis- 
bury, North Carolina and on February 4, 1966, at Bethel Lutheran Church, Sal- 
isbury, North Carolina. These were planning meetings for the upcoming Fall 
and Spring district meetings and for the consideration of other district affairs. 

The operation of the district has again been smooth and the spirit has 
been one of enthusiasm. 

DONALD E. HANBERRY, Dean 
Central District 

EASTERN DISTRICT 

The Eastern District held two meetings since the last convention of Synod. 
The fall convention was held at St. Paul's, Wilmington, the Rev. J. Frank Davis, 
D.D., pastor, on Tuesday, November 9, 1965. Holy Communion was administer- 
ed at the morning service. Operational Committees of the District made reports 
following the service of Holy Communion. The afternoon program consisted of a 
Panel, "Three Years of Working Together", moderated by the President of Synod, 
Dr. George R. Whittecar, with the Rev. Hoke Ritchie and Mr. C. B. Shulenberger 
as panelists. 

The spring District Meeting was held Sunday, February 27, 1966, at St. 
Philip's, Raleigh, the Rev. Robert J. Kepley, pastor. One hundred and eighteen 
attended. This meeting was a consultation type meeting at which all Oper- 
ational Committes held consultations. Devotions were conducted by the District 
Dean, and election of Operational Committees, for the coming three-year period 
were held as follows: 

Evangelism — The Rev. Robert J. Kepley, Charles R. Minges 
American Missions — The Rev. John D. Mauney, Jr., J. J. Lentz 
Parish Education- — The Rev. Glenn S. Eckard, Miss Kathleen Weant 
Social Ministry — The Rev. Jack D. Deal, Joseph A. Wooten, Jr. 
Stewardship- — The Rev. Harvey Blume, C. B. Shulenberger 
During the year coaching conferences were held on our territory, and in 
July a Stewardship Workshop was held with excellent response from the con- 
gregations. The above coaching conferences were on Parish Education. In 
June, Mission Developer, the Rev. Peter Setzer, began work in the field at 
Laurinburg, and services were held beginning in September. Services were also 
held again this summer at Atlantic Beach. Ground-breaking service for the new 
first unit at Ascension, Wilson, was held on January 9, 1966. Each of the dis- 
trict auxiliaries held regularly scheduled meetings during the year. Trinity, Rocky 
Mount, served as host for the North Carolina LCM Convention on November 3, 
1965 — the first time such a convention had been held in Eastern District. 

JOHN W. COBB, Dean 
Eastern District 

NORTHERN DISTRICT 

The Fall Meeting of the Northern District was held November 10, 1965, 
at Macedonia, Burlingtor., the Rev. Hoyle Whiteside, pastor. In the morning 
Dean Morgan preached on the subject, "I Believe in the Church — Do We?" 
District Secretary L. C. Bumgarner served as liturgist, and Synod President 
George Whittecar, assisted by the dean, administered Holy Communion. 

The afternoon session included special stewardship discussion groups fed 
by Dr. Whittecar, Dr. Misenheimer, and district stewardship representative Don 
Woolly. Due to the shortage in apportionment receipts over the L.C.A., con- 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 79 



gregations were asked to make every effort to meet and, if possible, to go 
beyond their minimum apportionment assignments. 

Also in the afternoon a panel discussion was held on the topic of "Three 
Years of Working Together in the L.C.A." President Whittecar represented 
synod's point of view while the Rev. Frank Perry and Mr. Roy Apple evaluated 
the effectiveness of the new church body from the congregation's viewpoint. The 
closing devotions were led by the Rev. Paul Monroe. 

The second meeting of the District was held in the evening of February 16, 
1966, at Pilgrim, Lexington, the Rev. Gene Beck, pastor. Pastors, lay delegates, 
and congregational operational committee chairmen were in attendance. Dean 
Morgan conducted the opening devotions. The congregational committee rep- 
resentatives then met in separate groups according to their interest. Synodical 
and district representatives led the group in discussions regarding their responsib- 
ilities. 

During this same period the pastors and lay delegates were assembled for 
the business meeting at which time elections were held for the District clerical and 
lay representatives for the five operational committees of Synod. The results of 
the elections were as follows: Evangelism — The Rev. Don Woolly and Mr. Amuel 
Fuqua; Social Ministry — The Rev. Harry Robinson and Mr. Norman Zimmer- 
man; Parish Education — The Rev. David Keck and Mrs. Wilford Wolfgang; 
Stewardship — The Rev. Earl McCombs and Dr. M. L. Aderholdt; and American 
Missions — The Rev. Hoyle Whiteside and Mr. Grover Seamon. 

Following the business, Dr. Whittecar spoke to the delegates on a number of 
pertinent matters and gave a number of interesting insights relative to the 
work of our church.

Northern District 

NORTHWESTERN DISTRICT 

The Northwestern District has met twice since the 1965 convention of 
synod. 

On Wednesday, November 17, 1965, the District met at Calvary Lutheran 
Church, Morganton, the Reverend John H. Sigmon, Jr., Pastor. In the morning 
the service of Holy Communion was held, and Dean Yost preached the sermon. 
After lunch, prepared by the host church, Dean Yost and the Operational Com- 
mittees presented brief reports. Most of the afternoon session was given to a 
presentation by the Reverend George Keck and Dr. George R. Whittecar, President 
of Synod, on the topic "These Three Years Together Since The Merger". Mr. 
Harry Arndt was to have taken part on the program, but was prevented from at- 
tending because of illness in the family. An interesting discussion followed the 
presentation. 

During the session The Reverend Charlie Hoyle was elected as secretary of 
the District to fill the unexpired term of The Reverend David Castor who had ac- 
cepted a call beyond the bounds of the District. 

The second meeting of the District was held on Sunday, February 20, 1966 
at St. Andrew's Lutheran Church, Hickory, The Reverend Albert H. Keck, Jr., 
Pastor. The afternoon meeting gathered together not only pastors and delegates, 
but operational commiteemen from the congregations. Sharing sessions were 
held for persons in each operational area. Delegates and pastors met with the 
President of Synod. After introductory remarks on the state of the church given 
by Dr. Whittecar, a discussion period was held. One definite action was taken to 
request the Executive Board to discuss with college and seminary officials the 
possibility of having an extension of the seminary graduate program on the 
campus of Lenoir Rhyne College during the summer months. 

Balloting for persons to serve on the Operational Committees for a term of 
three years resulted in the following elections: 

Evangelism — The Reverend Ted Goins, Lloyd Bollinger 
American Missions — Dr. Albert H. Keck, Jr., Arthur Lackey 
Parish Education — The Rev. David Wise, Dr. Clyde Taylor 
Social Ministry — The Rev. Robert Peery, Mrs. G. R. Patterson 
Stewardship — The Rev. George Phillips, Mrs. Clyde Hatchett

80 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



SOUTHERN DISTRICT 

As some investigator of the future looks into the history of the Lutheran 
Church of 1965-1966, he will surely be impressed by the spirit and tone of 
the records he surveys, and might well come to the conclusion that this was 
"the period of stabilization." 

Evidence that some of the problems attendant to a new pattern of policy 
had been settled and that the life of the church had made one of its many proper 
adjustments was manifest in the sample of the reports in a single district, the 
Southern. Facing candidly what "Three Years of Working Together" had 
meant, a panel composed of Dr. George R. Whittecar, Ray A. Cline, and 
Pastor Paul B. Cobb set the tone of honest optimism when the district convened 
on November 12 at St. David's Church, Kannapolis. This discussion followed the 
Service of Holy Communion and the dealing with items of business. The only 
new pastors to be received into the District during the year since the last annual 
report were recognized at that time: Pastor Robert Yount of Trinity Church, 
Concord; and Pastor Richard Dorton of St. Enoch Church, Kannapolis. Opera- 
tional committees indicated with detailed reports that they continued to serve a 
most helpful function. 

A snow storm caused nearly a month's delay in the Spring Meeting of the 
Southern District, but it failed to freeze the enthusiasm of those who came later 
to St. James Church, Concord, on the evening of February 21. All five opera- 
tional Committees had prepared to brief their congregational counterparts on 
the latest programs and information to keep their work going at a good pace. 
Pastors and lay delegates from the congregations met simultaneously to elect per- 
sonnel for the District Operational Committees for three year terms, and to 
discuss the state of the Church in the district and the Synod. CAMPUS received 
a brief focus at this meeting, supplementing earlier pastors' meeting at Calvary 
Church, Concord, and a Cluster Rally at Center Grove Church, Kannapolis. 

The election resulted as follows: Stewardship Committee, The Rev. J. Le- 
Grande Mayer, John Reichard; Evangelism, The Rev. Fred Ramseur, Joe Over- 
cash; Parish Education, The Rev. Paul B. Cobb, Mrs. Bachman Brown; American 
Missions, The Rev. T. C. Plexico, Luther Adams; Social Ministry, The Rev. David 
Nelson, Paul B. Beatty. 

The spirit of whole-hearted cooperation continues as the District moves 
into its second triennium. The apparent stability does not indicate a lack of 
activity, but rather shows a firm foundation as the basis for progress. 

C. MARION STARR, Dean 
Southern District 

SOUTHWESTERN DISTRICT 

The Southwestern District held its Fall Meeting at Ascension Lutheran 
Church, Shelby, N. C, on Nocember 11, 1965, with the Rev. Robert F. Sims, 
Pastor. 

The meeting began with The Service of Holy Comunion at 10 a.m. with the 
Rev. Robert F. Shelby, Jr., Dean, delivering the sermon. The Rev. Cyrus Frazier, 
Secretary, was Liturgist and the Rev. George R. Whittecar, D.D., President of 
the Synod, was Administrant. The host pastor assisted in the service. 

Group meetings for the purpose of discussing the congregational apportion- 
ment to the synodical budget were held. A strong plea was made to all con- 
gregations to meet their apportionment and if possible to go beyond their assigned 
amount. Three such groups were held. 

The Afternoon Session began at 1:45 p.m. with a panel discussion entitled: 
"Three Years of Working Together". The panel consisted of the Moderator, the 
Rev. Leroy C. Blackwelder, D.D.; the President of Synod, the Rev. George R. 
Whittecar, D.D., presenting "The Synod's View"; the Pastor, the Rev. K. Y. 
Huddle, presenting the "Pulpit-eye View"; and the Layman, Mr. Lex Barkley, pre- 
senting the "Pew-eye View". 

Operational Committee reports were presented during the morning and after- 
noon hours. 

The closing devotions were conducted by the Rev. Elmer Sundlie, Pastor of 
Good Shepherd, Brevard. 

The Spring Meeting of the Southwestern District, with consultation meetings

of Operational Committees, was held at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church, Kings 

Mountain, on Sunday, February 6, 1966, from 3:30 p.m. until 5 o'clock. 

Devotions were conducted by the host pastor, the Rev. Charles W. Easley 
An election of Operational Committee members for the district had been

Report Of Secretary 



) 

It has been a distinct privilege to serve as fulltime secretary of the North 
Carolina Synod for the term of three years to which he was elected at the Con- 
stituting Convention in 1962, and he has endeavored to give himself to the op- 
portunities and responsibilities of his office. Contacts which have been made 
throughout the synod have made a deep impression, and have contributed to his 
spiritual stature. During the first new term of office the work has been more 
than a mere experiment, but also a rich experience. He has appreciated the 
courtesy, consideration, and cooperation given to him by the pastors and congrea- 
tions of synod enabling him to perform his duties. 

With its many facets of responsibility, the office has provided many outlets 
for service as the report shows. Your secretary serves as the recording officer of 
the synod, the Executive Board, Committee of Deans, and the Committee on 
Historical Work. He also serves as statistician, necrologist, archivist, director of 
the news bureau, and assistant to regional director David F. Johnson in meeting 
assignments in home missions. The following is a catalogue of activities listed 
according to the organization of the office, and an accounting of the stewardship 
of the trust committed to him. 

I. As Recording Secretary 

Minutes of executive board meetings were carefully prepared and copies dis- 
tributed to board members following each meeting of the board for review and 
corrections. Minutes of executive board meetings and synodical conventions have 
been properly indexed by means of a card index system for easy and ready ref- 
erence. Actions of the Executive Board have been catalogued and are reported 
to the synod in the Report of the Executive Board, and matters requiring the ac- 
tion of the synod will be presented by members of the board instead of a com- 
mittee on executive board's report. 

Minutes of the Committee of Deans were prepared, distributed and properly 
filed, as well as the minutes of the Committee on Historical Work, of which the 
secretary is exofficio a member. Your sercetary has assisted the latter commit- 
tee in the preparation of materials, the selection and solicitation of pictures, for 
the new volume containing the biographical sketches of ministers. 

An up-to-date roll of ministers and congregations has been kept. The sec- 
retary maintains a large wall board of ministers and congregations by districts, 
including lists of non parish and retired pastors, which has been a great value to 
officers and staff, and other members of the synod desiring information. Certif- 
icates of transfers were issued to ministers accepting calls to other synods, and 
transfers of ministers accepting calls in the North Carolina Synod were added to 
the synodical roster, copies of which were sent to the office issuing the certificate, 
to the transferee, and to the office of the Lutheran Church in America. Monthly 
reports of all ministerial changes were sent to the LCA office. 

The secretary has also maintained a calendar of synodical functions, and 
would urge those responsible for planning and scheduling committee, district, and 



82 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



auxiliary events to clear dates through his office so as to avoid conflicts of meet- 
ings. 

Correspondence directed by the synod in convention, executive board and 
other committee actions, was properly dispatched. Elections and committee ap- 
pointments were certified. Executive board actions were relayed to all parties 
involved. Congregations whose constitutions were approved by the Executive 
Board were officially notified of such approval, accompanied by a registration 
form to be returned to the synodical office certifying that the congregation at a 
legally called congregational meeting had approved the constitution as approved 
by the Executive Board. Registration forms received were alphabetically filed. 
Files were kept of each congregation submitting a constitution. Communications 
were sent to congregations whose constitutions were not approved listing the 
unacceptable variances and urging reconsideration at such strategic points. 

Upon authorization, all legal documents reported in the Report of the Ex- 
ecutive Board, were executed. 

Correspondence in connection with the convention required letters of instruc- 
tion from the secretary's desk. 

Publications 

Six thousand copies of the Proceedings of the Fourth Convention of the North 
Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church in America (the 161st annual convention 
of the Lutheran Church in North Carolina, beginning in 1803) were printed and 
distributed to the congregations of synod, to officers of LCA synods, to boards and 
agencies of the church, to LCA college and seminary libraries and other church 
related libraries in North Carolina, to libraries of state institutions in N. C, and 
to the Library of Congress, according to a mailing list supplied by the LCA office. 

Five hundred and twenty five copies of the pre-convention bulletin were mail- 
ed to pastors and delegates prior to the convention. The secretary would request 
your detecting and discerning eyes for any grammatical or typographical errors 
spotted in your report or other reports which his own eyes may miss. 

Pre-Ccnvention Registration 

A pre-convention registration was conducted as specified by the constitution 
of synod. Registration cards for both clerical and lay delegates were forwarded to 
the Rev. G. Dwight Conrad, pastor of the host church, for use in the preparation 
of convention packets. Delegates are urged to report to their district registration 
table for an attendance check and their convention packets immediately upon 
arrival. Invcriably, there are delegates who are not counted due to the failure to 
report to the registration table. The Committee on Credentials and Enrollment 
has no other source of information as to names and number of those present. 

The Host Church 

We are privileged to meet for this Fifth Convention of the North Carolina 
Synod (the 162nd annual convention since the organization of the synod in 
1803) with Pastor G. Dwight Conrad and his Bethany congregation. We recall 
with vivid memories the 1963 ordination service which was held in this church. 
The formal opening and consecration service of the new Bethany church was held 
November 4, 1962. We congratulate Pastor Conrad and the Bethany congrega- 
tion upon their new and handsome facilities, and we extend to them our heart- 
felt appreciation for the use of these fine facilities for and by this convention. 

The secretary is most grateful to the host church and pastor, and to the 
sub-committee on conventions for their gracious assistance in the preparation of 
this convention. 

II. Statistically Speaking 

Parochial and parish directory forms with accompanying copies of directions 
and directives were sent to all congregations of synod January 1, 1966. The 
statistical season of the church year, extending from January 1 to February 15, 
1966, was fruitfully observed. It is good and gratifying to report that a parochial 
report was again received from every congregation of the synod, but not without 
persistent praying, pleading, and prodding. A BIG thank-you to all of our pastors 
and vice pastors, to church secretaries and vice chairmen, and to all responsible 
persons of vacant congregations for a 100% response to such an urgent call, 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 83 

thus enabling our office to file a composite report with the LCA office by Feb- 
ruary 15, the deadline date. 

The parochial report undergoes change each year. The financial section of 
the report was revised again. The whole report has been simplified since the 
LCA merger, lumping together receipts and expenditures which were once re- 
ported in detailed categories. 

The secretary would like to quote three paragraphs from last year's report 
Jor contiuning motivation for this important annual task: 

"While statistics do not tell the whole story, they do tell an important part 
of the story of what is happening in the life of our church. Statistics penetrate 
the official records of the church at so many strategic points. They provide 
the raw material to the boards and agencies of the church as they engage in 
studies relating to their own interests and problems. Every office in the synodical 
church house uses them for one purpose or another. 

"The parochial report is not only a good discipline, but an excellent devise 
for measuring the life and growth of the congregation reporting. The parochial 
report need not be an end in itself, but a means to a greater end. The congre- 
gation can use its set of statistics to a good advantage. The parochial report 
summarizes the work of the congregation for a whole year, and who has not 
found a summary helpful and necessary? It reflects much of the parish life in 
all areas of its ministry. Through the parochial report one can put his finger on 
the pulse of parish life and determine how rapidly or slowly the heart of the con- 
gregation is beating in all areas of activity. It shows where certain strengths and 
weaknesses lie. For example, if a congregation has gained little or nothing in 
membership during the year, this should be a cause of concern. What is the 
reason for it? It may and should lead to an entirely new evaluation of the con- 
gregation's program of evangelism and a study of community trends. If a con- 
gregation has failed to meet its apportionment, that too, should be a cause for 
concern. It may and should lead to new studies of the stewardship program and 
potential of the congregation. 

"A study of the parochial report by the congregation itself may well be the 
beginning of a more effective work and witness in the community and church 
at large of which it is so vitally a part." 

Your statistician would like to make a few observations. 

First, a word about correction sheets. 

The common error is still the simple problem of adding and subtracting. 
However, the parochial reports this year showed a considerable improvement over 
previous years. Less errors were discovered. Fewer correction sheets were sent. 
All reports must be carefully reviewed and checked before assembling statistics on 
the assembly sheets. Whenever an error is discovered, it is noted on an official 
correction sheet and mailed back to the congregation reporting so that synodical 
and congregational records will agree. 

Secondly, the number on active rol! of confirmed members. 

Congratulations! A dramatic improvement was noted in this area of statis- 
tics. In not a single case after attention was called to this matter was Item 26, 
"Number on Active Roll of Confirmed Members" less than Item 25, "Com- 
muning Members this year". Item 26 cannot be less than Item 25. Rather 
Item 26 begins with the number reported in Item 25. Confirmed members who 
have either communed or made a contribution of record within the preceding two 
years must be counted in Item 26, regardless of the definition of an active con- 
firmed member in the constitution. For statistical purposes, we must use the 
same rule in reporting statistics, or else the whole statistical arrangement of the 
church will be thrown out of order. However, twenty-one of the congregations 
reported the same number in each of the two above items. Your statistician would 
call your attention to a more careful checking of the communing and contributing 
records for these two vital statistics. 

It is a trend in the synod to bring Item 23, "Confirmed members this year" 
more in line with Item 26, "Members on the active roll of confirmed members". 
Twenty-two congregations reported the same number of members in each of these 
items. As the pendulum is swinging from padding to pruning church rolls, we 
are reminded of the second half of Article IV, Section 5 of the "Approved Con- 
stitution for Congregations": 



84 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



"Those confirmed members who no longer qualify for that roll because they 
have neither received Holy Communion nor made a contribution of record to the 
congregation within the preceding two years shall be classified as inactive. As 
such shall remain within the continuing concern of the congregation and 
shall be restored by the church council to the active roll of confirmed members 
when they again receive the Lord's Supper and make contributions of record to 
the congregation." 

Thirdly, benevolences, apportioned end unapportioned, are to be reported on 
the income as well as the expenditure side of the ledger. 

Even though the congregation operates on a unified budget, the amount dis- 
bursed for benevolences is to be reported on the income side of the ledger. The 
LCA office bases its statistics on income rather than expenditures. Last year, 
the North Carolina Synod was not given credit due to this discrepancy in report- 
ing. The current report will show $226,336 reported as income for "other 
benevolences" and $239,310 as disbursed for the same, a difference of $12,964, 
that will not be reported by the LCA office. However, the estimate on clothing 
sent for Lutheran World Relief may have accounted for some of this when actual 
monies were not involved. 

Fourthly, a suggestion for the re-appraisal of church properties. 

It was noted in a number of cases that the church properties of con- 
gregations were very conservatively valued. Church properties should be ap- 
praised at frequent intervals, both in buildings and contents. A church building 
costing $100,000 a few years ago would cost much more to build in these days of 
inflation. 

The present market price of the church building, parsonage, educational 
unit(s) should be reported. Since no tax increase is involved here, there should 
be no fear of having your church buildings re-appraised. Perhaps, it would be 
wise to do so for insurance purposes too. 

Now for the Statistical Report Itself 

Reports from the 199 congregations of the North Carolina Synod of the 
Lutheran Church in America show a baptized membership of 73,732. The 
synod's 5,574 gains were offset by its 5,129 losses for a net gain of 445. In- 
cluded in the synod's baptized membership are 19,389 child members, a loss of 
55 over the previous year. 

While the congregatons reported an increase of 3,348 confirmed members 
by baptism, confirmation, transfer and restoration, they also reported 2,848 losses 
by death, transfer, and revision of membership rolls for a net gain of 500, an in- 
crease of .9% for 1965. The confirmed membership was reported to be 54,343. 

Of the total losses reported in baptized and confirmed members, 1,341 were 
reported as "other losses", as compared with 1,062 for 1964, and 1,154 for 
1963. Most of these losses were due to revisions of membership rolls which has 
been the trend since the merger of the Lutheran Church in America in 1962. 
More and more of the congregations are bringing their memberships in line with 
their actual and active memberships. The congregations reported 45,017 on the 
active roll of confirmed members, an increase of 458 (1.03%) for the year. 

Communing members totaled 40,900, an increase of 443 (1.09%) over the 
previous year. 

The congregations also reported 928 in active military service. The total 
number of Sunday church schools was reported to be 196, and having an enroll- 
ment of 43,202. This was a loss of 799 over the previous year. 

The synod's 177 weekday church schools reported 6,964 pupils, a marked 
increase of 2,071 over 1964. There were 175 vacation schools conducted with 
a pupil enrollment of 14,097. 

There were 248 ministers on the roll of synod as of December 31, con- 
sisting of 172 parish pastors, 5 mission developers, 5 chaplains (militiary and 
institutional), 21 general workers, including college and seminary professors, 5 
missionaries, 37 retired, and 3 awaiting calls. 

Two new mission congregations were added to the synodical roll last year, 
St. Michael, High Point, and Christ the King, Cary. The synod's 200th congrega- 
tion, Resurrection, Guilford College, was organized in December, and will be re- 
ceived officially at the 1966 Hickory convention of synod. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 85 

Total giving for all causes, current and benevolences, during 1965 was $5,- 
296,2/3, wnich was $39,z53 less than that given in 19o4. However, all previous 
records were broken in apportioned benevolence of $977,693, which was $36,893 
(4%) above that given in 1964, thus placing the N. C. Synod in seventh place 
among tne 3 I LCa synods witn y3 % of its apportionment paid. The Synod gave 
92.6% of its apportionment in 1964. 

Total assets were reported at an alltime high of $32,913,752, an increase of 
over two million dollars. Indebtednees rose shgthly to over a halt million dollars 
from $3,4o 1,931 in 1964 to $4,uz7,101 in iyo5. 

Losses And Gains 

Sixty-five congregations reported losses in confirmed membership last year, 
1 1 congregations neid tneir own, and six reported less than 1 % gain. 

Of course, there are a numDer of factors which enter into the interpretation 
of each congregation's statistics. It cannot be denied that many of the congrega- 
tions which reported losses in membership last year were fulfilling their mission 
as significantly as those which reported substantial gains. In this fast moving 
space age in which some congregations report almost a complete turnover in 
membersnip in the course of a tew years, they, like Alice in Wonderland, have to 
run with all their might to stay ngnt where they are. 

However, it is of interest, statistically at least, to note the congregations 
which reported a net gain in confirmed membership of 10% or more. You will 
observe that more than half of this number are mission churches which indicate 
our wise investment in mission development. The names of the congregations are 
listed with their net percentages of growth: 

Christ the King, Cary — 100%+ — organized in 1964 and reported for 
the first time. 

St. Michael, High Point — 100%+ — organized in 1964 and reported for 
the first time. 

St. Thomas, Charlotte — 29% 

Christus Victor, Fayetteville — 28% 

St. Philip, Raleigh — 28% 

Our Father, Greensboro — 25% 

Incarnation, Charlotte — 18% 

Nazareth, Rural Hall — 14% 

St. Mark, Salisbury — 12% 

Messiah, Burlington — 1 1 % 

Our Redeemer, Greenville — 1 1 % 

Holy Cross, Lincolnton — 1 1 % 

St. Paul, Durham — 10% 

St. Luke, Lincolnton — 10% 

Grace, Boone- — -10% 

Holy Trinity, Charlotte — 10% 
The remainning congregations reported the following percentages of net 
gain in confirmed membership: 32, 1%; 20, 2%; 16, 3%; 13, 4%; 9, 5%; 
3, 6%; 4, 7%; 4, 87c; and 1, 9%.

III. In Memoriam 



"Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord." Revelation 14:13 

Your necrologist reports that during the interim the death angel invaded our 
ministeral camp and claimed the life of the Rev. B. E. Petrea, D.D. A memorial 
servce for Dr. Petrea has been arranged for Wednesday afternoon, May 4, at 
1:45 o'clock, and will be conducted by the Rev. R. Douglas Fritz, convention 
chaplain. 

We take note of the deaths of Mrs. Corrie Ella Wessinger Bickley, widow cf 
the Rev. J. J. Bickley, June 19, 1965; Mrs. Leah Blackwelder Fisher, widow of 
the Rev. J. H. C. Fisher, October 17, 1965; and Mrs. Ruth Armstrong Nelson, 
wife of the Rev. John E. Nelson, Ed. M. 

Your necrologist reports also that a number of prominent lay people were 
called from the earthly scene to their heavenly home. 

The synod's hand of sympathy is extended to each of these bereaved fami- 
lies. May the gracious Father in Heaven comfort them in their sorrow, remem- 
bering that earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. 

IV. When the last State is Better Than the First 

Your archivist reports that the house of the archives has been put in good 
order. It has been a long and laborious process, but the end of the immediate 
task is in sight. About 95% of the cataloguing has been completed. Thou- 
sands of cards have been placed in alphabetical order for easy and ready refer- 
ence. When the cataloguing has been completed, the archivist plans to publish 
a listing of materials which are available in the archives for the information of 
everyone concerned and with the hope of filling in some of the gaps in certain 
areas which are sure to exist. We, who are working in the archives, are now 
better able to serve those who request our services. Truly, the valley of dry bones 
has come to life again. 

There are a number of files of particular and historical significance. Two 
congregational files have been established and are being maintained: first, an 
historical data file for each congregation of synod, consisting of bulletins, clip- 
pings, and documents of special events; and secondly, a correspondence file, con- 
sisting of communications, letters, petitions, and the like. These files have been 
alphabetically arranged for quick reference. There is also a biographical data 
file of ministers which has proved invaluable to the Committee on Historical Work 
in its compilation of biographical sketches for the forthcoming volume, Lutheran 
Ministers in North Carolina. 

During the year, your archivist answered an increasing number of requests 
for biographical data. Letters were written to LCA college and seminary li- 
brarians offering available copies of the North Carolina Synod minutes to fill 
missing gaps, and a number of requests were met. There are still extra copies 
of synodical minutes not needed which will be made available to the ministers 
of the synod and to those desiring them. Upon action of the Committee on 
Historical Work, complimentary copies of the History of the Lutheran Church in 
North Carolina — Supplement were sent to the following: the office of the Lu- 
theran Church in America; LCA synodical offices; libraries of LCA colleges and 
church; the libraries of colleges and universities in North Carolina; and the 
Library of Congress. 

Additions to the Archives 

The following materials were added to the archives during the year: 

1. The usual additions of our own synodical publications,, including History of 
the Lutheran Church in North Carolina, Supplement, minutes, and issues 
of the North Carolina Lutheran; 

2. Anniversary booklets, year books, and bulletins of historical value for main- 
tenance of congregational files; 



88 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

3. Minutes of LCA synods; 

4. Newspaper articles of historical significance received from the Clipping 
Service; 

5. The Journals of Henry Meichiar Muhlenberg, Volumes II and III; 

6. Again, we report a large collection from the library of the late Dr. J. L. 
Morgan. An itemized iisting of every document, book, and piece of literature 
from Dr. Morgan's library has been placed in the archives, and a copy has 
been sent to the family acknowledging these valuable additions. We are 
most grateful to Mrs. Arthur Kirkman and the Morgan family for remem- 
bering tne archives so generously. We now have in addition to the above 
a complete file of Dr. Morgan's personal and official correspondence, com- 
munications, petitions, papers dating from 1921 to 1957, including a period 
of Mrs. Morgan's letters and personal data. 

7. Upon the interest and initiative of Mr. Bernard Cruse, a member of the 
Committee on Historical Works, the following translations were done by 
Dietrich Leipolz, a German exchange student at the Lutheran Theological 
Southern Seminary, 1964-65: 

a. The ledger of the Rev. Johann Gottfried Arends; 

b. The diary of the Rev. Carl Augustus Storch; 

c. Miscellaneous documents, including birth and baptism certificates, and 
also license of Daniel Moser to preach; 

d. A photostatic copy of a statement from the baptism report of the 
Catholic parochial church, Munster, Westphalia, Germany, of the birth 
and baptism of Adolph Nussmann. 

8. A collection of pictures of ministers for biographical data files and for use 
in the new volume of Lutheran Ministers in North Carolina. 

The house of the archives was further put in order with the following items 
of furniture and equipment, desk and matching chair, work table and chairs, filing 
cabinets, and steel shelves. 

Suggestions 

The report of the archivist carries no recommendations, but he would like 
to make a few suggestions. 

First, he would encourage congregations to send copies of bulletins of special 
occasions, such as groundbreaking, cornerstone layings, dedications, anniversary 
booklets, and church histories to keep the congregational historical data file up 
to date. Annual reports listing membership rolls are of historical value. Ordinary 
bulletins which have no historical value are not needed and would only clutter 
the files. 

Secondly, he would encourage congregations to consider seriously the matter 
of depositing their old church records in the archives for safety and synodical 
purposes. There are records of some 25 churches in the archives. It is a great 
loss when valuable church records are destroyed by fire when they could be pre- 
served in the fire proof archives at the Church House. 

The archivist takes this opportunity to express his appreciation to the Com- 
mittee on Historical Work, Miss Edith Clark, Director of the Rowan Public Li- 
brary, and Mrs. Charles Roberts, secretary to Archivist Lyerly, for their kind and 
able assistance. 

V. The Synod in the News 

Your director of the News Bureau has attempted to keep the synod in the 
news with releases of significant happenings in the life of the synod. Articles 
featuring the synodical conventions, conventions of the auxiliary units, installa- 
tion of the Rev. J. White Iddings, D.D., as Lutheran Institutional Chaplain, Dur- 
ham area, resignation of the Rev. L. C. Bumgarner from the Committee on 



LUTHER AN CHURCH IN AMERICA 89 

Parish Education and recognition for twenty one years of faithful services, synodic- 
al statistics, death and memorial service of the Rev. B. E. Petrea, D.D., were re- 
leased to pastors and news media during the year. 

Lines of communication have been opened with at least 75 news media in 
strategic areas throughout the synod and state. Personal contacts are made from 
time to time in the interests of promoting good coverage. At the present, the 
Committee on Publications and Publicity is sponsoring subscriptions of 
The Lutheran and the North Carolna Lutheran to the 55 news media requesting 
them. Also releases from the Commission on Press, Radio, and Television are 
sent to some fifteen of the leading newspapers in the state. 

Last year, 55 radio stations covered the Protestant Hour, and a goodly num- 
ber of TV stations presented the special Christmas program of Davey and Goliath. 

Monthly reports of ministerial changes were sent to the LCA office and to 
Editor G. Elson Ruff for publication in The Lutheran. 

Releases on executive board actions, coming events, and other articles of 
interest were sent to Editor Jeff Norris for publication in the North Carolina Lu- 
theran. 

Your director maintains a file of biographical sketches and mats of synodical 
officers and staff to meet the requests of pastors and congregations requesting 
them. 

Your director is impressed with and is profoundly grateful for the effective 
manner in which pastors and congregations keep their respective churches in the 
news. This, of course, is the responsibility of the pastor and congregation along 
with the local committee on publicity. Only news of synodical functions is re- 
leased from the News Bureau. We should not hesitate in the least to publicize 
the news and views of the church. 

A number of our pastors have regular news programs in their communities. 
This is most commendable and is a dramatic contribution to the religious life of 
the community. It is also an effective and eloquent witness of the Lutheran 
church. 

Your director of the News Bureau works in consultation with the Committee 
on Publication and Publicity, of which he is exofficio a member, and is most ap- 
preciative to the committee and its chairman, Pastor Charles W. Easley, for their 
alertness and effectiveness in sharing the good news of the gospel. The com- 
mittee has again made plans to maintain a press room for extensive coverage of 
the Hickory convention. 

A word of appreciation also goes to the pastors throughout the synod who 
have widened the avenues of communication with their personal contacts and 
good public relations. 

VI. As Assistant in Home Missions 

Constitutionally, the secretary, upon approval of the Executive Board, shall 
serve the Committee on American Missions in carrying out its duties and shall 
assist the regional secretary in the area of American Missions assigned to him. 
The secretary has been authorized by the Executive Board to give staff assistance 
to the sub-committee on survey and development in studying prospective fields 
for preemption and development. 

The following assignments were met in home missions: 

1. Participated in Town and Country Seminar sponsored by the North Carolina 
Council of Churches held May 1 1, 1965, at N. C. State University, Raleigh; 

2. Made field survey of two areas in Gastonia upon request of Regional Sec- 
retary David F. Johnson; 

3. Also made field survey of Research Triangle area, Durham, upon request of 
Secretary Johnson; 



90 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

4. Participated in launching of capital funding effort June 22, 1965, Ascension, 
Wilson; 

5. Special attention given to Prince of Peace, Kinston, including 4 field trips, 
conferences and visitations, field survey to determine prospects for growth, 
and a study of the internal life of the congregation; 

6. Attended four meetings of the Committee on American Missions. 

VII. As Personnel Officer 

The personnel practices as adopted by the Executive Board were properly 
administered. 

A recognition dinner in honor of Miss Rose Miller, retiring secretary-book- 
keeper to the office of the treasurer of synod, was held at the Lutheran Church 
House, Salisbury, Friday evening, March 4, at 6:30 p.m., by the synodical officers 
and staff and their families. Tributes of appreciation were given by Dr. George 
R. Whittecar, president of synod, and synodical treasurer Charles S. Heilig. 

Mrs. Gray Hampton, a member of St. John's Lutheran Church, Salisbury, is 
the new bookkeeper to Treasurer Heilig. 

Recognition is here made of the efficient services of our Church House 
secretarial staff, the names of whom are given in the president's report. There 
is here at the Church House a true sense of partnership in Kingdom service. 

VIII. Not Merely a Desk Job 

The office with its flurry of activities is not merely a desk job. It provides 
multiple outlets for field services, a number of which have been reported under 
assignments in home missions. Your secretary reports the followig number of 
official and pastoral services during the interim: three installations; two ground- 
breakings; one anniversary; one homecoming; six congregational meetings for the 
calling of pastors; three memorial services; 24 preaching appointments; three 
conferences; six adresses; and two preaching missions, St. Luke, Lexington, and 
Gloria Dei, Salisbury. He also participated in the workshop for new ministers and 
their wives, and the CAMPUS rally program. 

In addition, your secretary has served as vice pastor of Grace Church, 
Thomasville, since July 1, 1965, and has devoted much of his time to serving 
this congregation during the closing stages of its building program. He reports 
the following activities: 50 sermons; 135 conferences; 145 meetings; 300 pas- 
toral calls; five communions; 55 private communions; three baptisms, and assist- 
ed in the total work of the church. 

In Conclusion 

Thus ends a rare combination of activities by your secretary. Whatever has 
been accomplished in these significant and strategic areas on Kingdom service has 
been done by the Grace of Him who is the head of the church, and by the 
gracious assistance and cooperation of the Church House staff to whom he will be 
forever grateful. For such co-laborers as they, he thanks God and takes courage. 

Recommendations 

1. That a copy of the 1965 Proceedings of the North Carolina Synod of 
the Lutheran Church in America, held in Macedonia Lutheran Church, Burling- 
ton, N. C, May 3-6, 1965, as certified by the president and secretary of the 
synod, be approved as the official protocol of the said convention. 

2. That a memorial page including the biograghical sketch and picture of 
the Rev. B. E. Petrea, D.D. be so designated in the 1966 minutes of synod. 

PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO CONSTITUTION 

Prior notice was given at the 1965 convention of the following amendments 
to the constitution of the North Carolina Synod: 
1. Committee on Executive Board's Report 

That Article Two, Section V. Item 1, be amended by striking sub-item b, 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 91_ 

"On Executive Board's Report", and by relettering the remaining sub- 
items. (See 1965 Proceedings, P. 58). 

This eliminates a committee on executive board's report, and follows the 
procedures of the previous convention of recognizing board members for 
presentation to the synod of executive board matters. 

II. Committee on Church Vocations 

That Article Seven, Section IV be amended by inserting a new No. 1 as 

follows: 

1 . Membership of the Committee 

This committee shall consist of the President of Synod, and nine 
additional members, four ministers and five laymen, 
b. Regular appointments shall be for a three year term, but shall be so 
arranged that the terms of one-third of the committee expire each 
year. That the present No. 1 become No. 2. 
(See 1965 Proceedings, P. 122). 

III. Actions of the 1964 LCA Pittsburgh Convention involving amendments to 
the synodical constitution. (See 1965 Proceedings, Page 237-239.)

J. WILFORD LYERLY, 

Secretary 

Report of the Secretary of Christian Education 

The following report of the Secretary of Christian Education in no way in- 
dicates the results of individual activity. At each step in gathering informaion, 
figures and conclusions, it became increasingly evident that the work of countless 
persons, a number of committees, even boards and commissions of the church, 
appear in these paragraphs. This is necessarily true for the staff worker whose 
assignment is to bring ideas, implement programs, and engage in field work for 
several committees. "Teamwork" becomes more than an empty word; it be- 
comes a vital part of each activity: In this past year I have experienced team- 
work of the finest quality. 

I. CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

In terms of time the major task of my office is with Christian Education. 
The continuing introduction of the Parish Education Curriculum into our congrega- 
tions was the focus of most activity here. Coaching Conferences were held in 
twenty-eight areas to help teachers prepare to use new materials. Laboratory 
schools were held at Lutheridge in four age-groups, with leadership provided by 
the Board of Parish Education. Persons trained in the laboratory experiences 
served as demonstration teachers in their own classes for visiting teachers. One 
pilot project in audio-visual training was held. 

Such activities point toward future developments concentrated upon leader- 
ship training. The primary task of Christian education is the equipment of the 
individual for the vocation to which God has called him. This is equally true 
in the congregation or the synod. And it seems evident at this point that de- 
velopment of such leadership training must come soon, in a variety of ways. 

Laboratory classes will be held at Lutheridge again this summer to help 
train those who can become teachers-of-teachers. Similar classes on the local 
level, along with demonstration sessions, probably offer the most effective help 
for the teacher in the church schools. 

Help for the teacher is a high-priority need in the synod, according to re- 
sults of the Christian education survey completed late in the year. Less than 
half of our congregations (42%) offer leadership courses or "in service train- 
ing." Standards of training for teachers are either low or non-existent. The 
survey indicated that we have many dedicated and capable teachers, and that we 
are failing them in not offering assistance. 

A decrease in Sunday Church School enrollment during the year of 2 J/2% 
came partly through adjustment to the curriculum and partly through changing 
patterns of weekend activity. It seems evident that many pupils, esDecially 
adults, have not grasped the basic purposes of Christian education. Many at- 
tend classes from loyalty and habit but steadfastly resist attempts at learning 
because learning involves change. 

We must communicate the "why" of Christian education as well as the 
"how", the purpose and the method. With the development beginning this year 
of a synod-centered program guided by our committee rather than the Board of 
Parish Education, the work of the Parish Education Committee can be more 
responsive to our particular needs, more flexible in approach. 

This work will include additional laboratory schools, demonstration classes 
and workshops in a wider range of tooics. CooDerative efforts with the college 
and seminary faculties will be increased, including summer schools,, weekend

conferences, and congregational staff training. Basic to these developments 
will be an emphasis on human relationships, the ministry cf one to another 
in service and witness as faith transforms lives. Such ministry comes as persons 
become more aware of basic needs, as we come to understand ourselves and are 
freed to live for others through Christ Jesus. 

During the year your Secretary of Christian Education was involved in 46 
synodical projects or meetings in Christian education and 18 congregational 
activities. 

Upon the retirement as Parish Education Committee chairman of the Rev- 
erend Lethco C. Bumgarner, may I be permitted this expression of my personal 
appreciation for his leadership and service. 

li. YOUTH MINISTRY 

Responsibilities in youth work during the year involved me in 56 projects 
or meetings during the year on the congregational and synodical levels. Those 
within congregations, in most instances, were attempts to help the youth and 
advisors define youth ministry in each congregation. Again we must determine 
our central objectives before we CGn set a program of study or activity. Nothing 
seems less attractive to youth than an organization with no vital purpose. 

Determining purpose and objectives is a central concern of the Leadership 
Schools sponsored, by the Youth Committee of synod and the Luther League Unit. 
Two "Basic Schools and one Seminar" involved more than 200 Leaguers and adult 
counselors in an experience of faith and fellowship. 

These leadership programs will explore the emerging directions of youth 
ministry during the coming summer. Changes will be more extensive than the 
change of name to "Youth Ministry Institute" and "Youth Ministry Seminar". 
Through the cooperation of the Commission on Evangelism, the Rev. James 
Stephenson will serve as resource leader as youth and advisors study the mean- 
ing of the congregation's nature and ministry for the youth group. This effort 
of the Youth Committee with the Evangelism Commission may be significant, not 
only for youth work, but as an indication of the value of cooperative programs in 
other areas. 

The fuller meaning of "Youth Ministry" is taking shape rapidly. The series 
of conferences involving pastors, youth and adult workers with youth is the first 
definite step in communicating this program to the synod and implementing it in 
the youth group. The solid support of the president of synod and the executive 
board has been of key importance in this effort. 

Additional steps will include, along with the Institutes and Seminar, train- 
ing programs for advisors. The workshops held during the past year were helpful 
in various parts of the synod. While limited in scope and number, they indicated 
the need for more extensive training programs. 

The first Youth Conference of the LCA attracted more than 170 youth 
and adults to Miami Beach in August for a crowded program with outstanding 
speakers. Through this office travel arrangements were completed on chartered 
railroad coaches. 

The Luther League Unit continued to serve as a link between the churchwide 
auxiliary and the congregational unit. Details of the unit's activities are re- 
ported through the Committee on Auxiliaries. As staff worker for the unit's 
executive committee, it was my privilege to share in the planning and execution 
of these functions. Year after year this synod has been served by outstanding 
youth, as indicated by the number chosen for leadership in the international Lu- 
ther League. The unit itself continues to lead the Luther League-LCA in fi- 
nancial contributions although not the largest numerically. It also supplies a 
significant number of caravaners and work campers. 

III. CHURCH CAMPING 

Plans for camping and related activities within the synod are based on 
projections showing that Lutheridge facilities cannot fulfill future needs. As 
the number of conferences, schools, and retreats at Lutheridge increases and as 
the number of camp age youth increases, development of additional camping con- 
ference and retreat facilities becomes more urgent. ExDerts in the field advise 
that acreage for camp development in North Carolina will be more expensive and 
more difficult to locate within a very few years. The synod must look ahead, 
taking adequate steps immediately. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 95 

With the action of the executive Board to secure the services of a camp 
Planner, these steps may become a reality. The "may" will be determined by the 
synod's future action on specific proposals and by the response of congregations 
and individuals in financial support. 

Again the youth of the synod have moved ahead by providing more than 
$2,500.00 from Penny Parade funds as a start toward conference and retreat 
facilities. As with the development of Lutheridge, we can look to the Luther 
League for leadership. 

Among our congregations there has been a significant increase in con- 
ference and retreat programs, many held at Lutheridge. It is evident that this 
camp will become a center for year-round activities and that additional sites in 
other sections of the synod will be needed. 

IV. CHURCH VOCATIONS 

A new assignment for the Secretary of Christian Education is secretary to 
the Church Vocations Committee. Responsibilities include record-keeping and 
correspondence, with special projects as assigned. In 1965 this included super- 
vision of the work of the committee's field worker, Seminarian Larry Yoder. 

As the report of the committee indicates, additional guidance v/ill be offered 
to individual church vocations students. Cooperative projects will be developed 
with congregations and auxiliaries to communicate the needs and opportunities 
in church vocations to the youth of the synod. 

V. FILM LIBRARY 

Use of the film library by congregations of the synod increased during the 
year to an average of 50 bookings per week. Growth comes as new titles are 
added to the library and equipment is secured by congregations. Certain prob- 
lems increase also. Popular series of filmstrips create scheduling difficulties. 
Users decide to keep materials an extra week without realizing that it is 
scheduled elsewhere. Inexperienced operators of equipment damage films, some 
beyond repair. 

Workshops in audio-visuals across the synod will ease some of these pro- 
blems. In addition it is desirable that each congregation have one person re- 
sponsible for the use of audio-visuals and equipment. 

New materials are added to the library to meet needs expressed by our 
members. We always apprciate suggestions on new titles and improved service. 

VI. OTHER DUTIES 

In addition to designated assignments with committees, the Secretary of 
Christian Education has other duties under the direction of the president of synod 
and the executive board. Included in these are representing the president at 
official actions such as ground-breakings, dedications, congregational meetings; 
pastoral supply in congregations; and service on other committees. 

During the past year I participated in four official actions and 53 other 
meetings and conferences. 

The continued fine relationship with President Whittecar, Secretary Lyerly, 
Dr. Misenheimer, the executive board and committees, makes my work very re- 
warding. The cooperation of pastors and laymen in every endeavor makes 
teamwork a reality.

Our examination was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing 
standards and accordingly included such tests of the accounting records and 
such other auditing procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances, 
with the exception that cash receipts were not verified with donors by direct 
correspondence. 

In our opinion, the accompanying statement of cash receipts, disbursements

Report Of The Committee On Reports Of 
Officers And Staff 

The president recognzed the Rev. K. Y. Huddle, chairman of the committee 
on Reports of Officers and Staff for this committee's report. The report follows: 

Your Committee on Reports of Officers and Staff has read the reports of the 
Pesident, Assistant to the President, District Deans, Secretay, Treasurer, and the 
Secretary of Christian Education and find they have fully recorded the many 
duties of their respective offices. 

We commend these brethren for the diligence with which they have execut- 
ed the duties of their offices and thank God for their strength, abilities, and con- 
secration to the services of His Kingdom in the Church. 

We note only two recommendations carried in these reports. They are in that 
of the Secretary on Page 34 of the Bulletin. 

We recommend that: 

1. Attention be given to the statement of the president on Page 7 of the 
convention Bulletin of his report concerning the adoption of the constitutions 
by congregations; and if there are questions for clarifications that congregations 
meet this deadline that opportunity be given for the president to receive them in 
connection with his report. 

2. Any mistakes found in these reports should be reported to the secre- 
tary with proper corrections, and that the secretary be directed to make such 
corrections. 

3. Note be made of the fact, in the secretary's report bottom Page 25 the 
Bulletin, -that the secretary maintains a calendar of synodical functions, and 
we urge all those planning meetings on a district or synodical level to clear the 
date with the secretary to avoid conflicts, and so that such meetings can appear 
in the N. C. Lutheran's calendar of Coming Events. 

4. Recommendations 1 and 2, on Page 34 of secretary's report be adopted. 

5. The proposed amendments to the synodical constitution, Pages 35 and 
36, be given due consideration. 

6. Each officer and staff member be recognized in connection with this re- 
port and that the treasurer be given what time he desires of the alloted time left 
for this report to make comments. 

7. The report of the Officers and Staff included in Pages 6-57 of the 
convention bulletin be received as information and printed in the minutes with 
the corrections given to the secretary. 

8. This report be adopted by a rising vote of the convention as an ex- 
pression of our appreciation of the work carried to completion and the leader- 
ship given to the Church by the Officers and Staff during the past year.

THE REV. DERMONT F. SWICEGOOD 
THE REV. JOHN H. SIGMON 
J. W. McGEE, JR. 
HARRY M. ARNDT 
HENRY VONOESEN 
The report was considered seriatim. 
Recommendation 1 was adopted. 

In connection with this recommendation President Whittecar made a state- 
ment expressing the hope that all congregations would adopt constitutions in 
harmony with the constitutions of the synod and the Lutheran Church in Amer- 
ica in America by December 31, 1966, the deadline date. The reversionary 
clause, Section 8 of Article III of the Approved Constitutions for Congregations 
is written into the Constitution of the Synod and the By-Laws of the Lutheran 
Church in America, and congregations were urged to bring their constitutions 
in line with corresponding provisions in these two named documents. 



112 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

Recommendation 2 was adopted. 

Recommendation 3 was adopted. 

Recommendation 4 was adopted. 

In connection with this recommendation, Secretary Lyerly presented the 
official protocol of the 1965 Proceedings of the North Carolina Synod of the 
Lutheran Church in America, held in Macedonia Lutheran Church, Burlington, 
N. C, May 3-6, 1965, listing corrections which had been made. 

Recommendation 5 was adopted, with the understanding that the amend- 
ments would be considered at a later time in the convention. 

Recommendation 6 was adopted. 

Officers and staff made brief statements concerning their reports. Secretary 
of Christian Education Brady Faggart was to be heard later regarding his re- 
port as time was running out for the Special Order at 11:00 o'clock. 

Treasurer Charles Heilig made reference to the change of personnel in his 
office in the retirement of Miss Rose Miller and the employment of Mrs. Gray 
Hampton as new secretary-bookkeeper in the treasurer's office. Mr. Heilig asked 
for permission to present the miscellaneous section of his report in a revised form 
for the minutes. 

Recommendation 7 was adopted. 

Recommendation 8 was adopted by a rising vote. 

President Whittecar expressed a word of appreciation for the gratitude vote 
in behalf of all officers and staff.

Report of the Examining Committee 

The report of the Examining Committee, presented by the Rev. Samuel L. 
Sox, D.D., chairman, follows: 

The Examining Committee of the North Carolina Synod of the Lutheran 
Church in America met in the Church House in Salisbury, North Carolina, on 
Monday, March 14, 1966. The following members were in attendance: the 
Rev. Samuel L. Sox, D.D., chairman; Synod President Dr. George R. Whittecar, 
the Rev. Wade F. Hook, Ph.D., the Rev. Ray R. Fisher, D.D., R. Brown Mc- 
Allister, LL.D., the Rev. M. R. Farris, the Rev. Marshall Mauney, the Rev. 
J. Lewis Thornburg, D.D., and the Rev. Marion Starr. The Rev. Voigt R. Cromer, 
D.D., was absent due to illness. No replacement has been made for the Rev. 
Rudolph G. Schultz, D.D., LCA appointee, but his successor will be named by 
the Executive Council at its April 1966 meeting. 

It was agreed by the committee that the seven men making application for 
ordination by the North Carolina Synod be examined individually. It was further 
agreed that the examination should cover theological knowledge, personal Chris- 
tian convictions, attitudes, motivations, devotional life, concept of the ministry, 
aptness to teach, and loyalty to the church. 

The following candidates for ordination were presented individually to the 
committee, having placed on file applications for ordination, statements from 
the college of graduation and from the seminary of proposed graduation and 
biographical sketches: 

(1) Floyd Eugene Sides, from St. Peter's Church, Salisbury, N. C, called 
by the Board of American Missions for service as a Mission Developer; call 
accepted. 

(2) Maurice E. Staley, from Alamance Church, Alamance, N. C, called 
to Richfield Parish (New Bethel and Mt. Zion); call accepted. 



116 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



(3) Billy Ray Hoffner, from St. Matthew's Church, Salisbury, N. C, called 
to Our Saviour, Johnson City, Tennessee; call accepted. 

(4) Carroll L. Robinson, from Lutheran Chapel Church, Gastonia, N. C; 
call pending. 

(5) David Keller Huddle, from Christ Church, Stanley, N. C, called to 
Philadelphia, Granite Falls; call accepted. 

(6) Edwin W. McKinley, from Trinity Church, Concord, N. C, called to 
Incarnation, Columbia, S. C, as assistant pastor; call accepted. 

(7) George G. Kinney, from St. Paul's Church, Burlington, N. C; call 
pending. 

When the individual examinations had been completed, the following mo- 
tion was offered by Pastor Farris, seconded by Dr. Thornburg: "Upon completion 
of their academic work and upon acceptance of regular calls of the church that 
we recommend for ordination by the North Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church 
in America Floyd Eugene Sides, Maurice E. Staley, Billy Ray Hoffner, Carroll L. 
Robinson, David Keller Huddle, Edwin W. McKinley and George G. Kinney." The 
motion carried unanimously. 

The candidates were brought back to the meeting in a body, and the chair- 
man informed them that they had passed satisfactorily their examinations. 
President Whittecar added that they would be greeted by the synod in conven- 
tion at Bethany Church, Hickory, May 3, 1 1:00 a.m. as a part of the report of 
this committee; and that the Service for Ordination is set for June 5, 1966, at 
Lutheran Chapel, Gastonia. 

The Examining Committee now presents to the synod Floyd Eugene Sides, 
Maurice E. Staley, Billy Ray Hoffner, Carroll L. Robinson, David Keller Huddle, 
Edwin W. McKinley and George G. Kinney for ordination by the North Carolina 
Synod of the Lutheran Church in America upon the completion of their academic 
work at the seminary and upon the completion of their academic work at the 
seminary and upon their fulfillment of the rules and regulations governing or- 
dinands for the Lutheran Church in America. 

"Guidelines for Examining Committees" from the Executive Council, Lu- 
theran Church in America, were, on December 3, considered and studied by the 
Examining Committee of synod at the request of the Conference of Synodical 
Presidents. Recognizing the many variations of procedure among the examining 
committees over the Lutheran Church in America, and believing that the guide- 
lines approved by the Executive Council, LCA, cover the responsibilities placed 
upon synodical examinining committees, your Examining Committee unanimous- 
ly passed the following motions: 

(1) "That the committee accept the recommended "Guidelines For Exam- 
ining Committees" as proper procedure in the examination of candidates for the 
ministry. 

(2) "That these guidelines be reported to the synod as an item of informa- 
tion." 

This has been done as the "Bulletin for the 5th Annual Convention of the 
North Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church in America" testifies. 

In connection with the report, and as a part of the report, the candidates 
for ordination whose names appear in the report were recognized and presented 
to the convention. 

The recommendation was adopted by a rising vote. 

On motion of Chairman Sox, the report was adopted as a whole. 

The guidelines for examining committees were presented by the committee 
as information. Chairman Sox said that the guidelines were procedures for the 
committee to follow in its future examination of students, and that there was 
need for uniformity throughout the church. 

Kecommended Guidelines for 
Examining Committees 

1 . Written examination 

As normal practice, the Examining Committee will arrange for each candi- 
date to take a written examination of two to three hours duration in the 
autumn prior to the year in which he hopes to be ordained. The intent and 
character of this examination will be to inquire into the candidate's theological 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 117 



learning for the purpose of ascertaining his personal Christian convictions. The 
questions are to De tormulated Dy tne board ot Tneoiogical tducation for use 
tnrougnout the Lutheran Cnurcn in America in that year. 

2. Preliminary colloquium with Examining Committee 

Again as normal practice, the txamimng Committee will have a preliminary 
colloquium with eacn cana.dute ciose to tne beginning of the caienaar year of 
his prospective oramation berore he receives ana responds to a call. 

In aavance ot tnis conoquium and in preparation tor it, each member of 
the Examining Committee will be furnished tnese documents regarding each 
candidate: 

1) a copy of his written examination; 

2) a report and evaluation from each of the following: 

a) tne Committee on Church Vocations which has had him under 

its care; 

b) the theological seminary or seminaries at which he has studied; 

c) the pastor or other supervisor to whom he was assigned during his 

year of internship. 

The preliminary colloquium will be in the form of an oral interview with 
each candidate separately, carried on preferably by the Examining Committee 
as a whole or, alternately, by a subcommittee consisting of from three to five 
members appointed to act in its stead. Preparatory individual conversations 
with a candidate by a designated single member of the committee are not pre- 
cluded, if desired by the committee. 

The purpose of the preliminary colloquium will be to enable the Examining 
Committee to inquire in depth into the candidate's theological knowledge, per- 
sonal Christian convictions, attitudes, motivations, devotional life, concept of 
the ministry, aptness to teach, and loyalty to the church. It shall ascertain that, 
if called to serve an LCA congregation, he will carry out fully the functions of 
the pastoral office as defined in Section II of the by-laws of the church (1964 
LCA convention minutes, pp. 106 and 631, paragraph "h"). 

Such an interview should typically last from thirty minutes to one hour. 
Once the committee is satisfied on these scores, it will indicate to the president 
of the synod its provisional approval of the candidate as one whom he may pro- 
ceed with confidence to recommend for a call. 

3. Final colloquium with Examining Committee 

Final action on each candidate, leading to a recommendation that he be 
ordained, will normally be taken by the Examining Committee at a second 
colloquium with him shortly before ordination. At that time the committee will 
review with the candidate the substance of the preliminary colloquium for as long 
as is desirable, normally no less than fifteen minutes in each case. The Com- 
mittee will also 

1) ascertain, or authorize the president of the synod to ascertain in its 
behalf, that he has fulfilled the required theological education prior to 
ordination (1964 LCA convention minutes, pp. 105-106 and 631, 
paragraphs "a" and "h"); 

2) establish that he is eligible to serve in the ministry of the Lutheran 
Church in America under the terms of Article VII, Section 4 of the 
constitution of the church (see 1964 LCA convention minutes, pp. 107 
and 631, paragraph "m"); and 

3) examine the call, if any, that he has received in order to be able to 
certify to the synod that the call is in proper order in all respects (1964 
LCA convention minutes, pp. 106 and 631, paragraph "h"). 

If a candidate does not yet have a call, it may authorize the president 
of the synod or one or more of its other members to scrutinize the call docu- 
ment in its stead. The committee may, at its discretion, recommend to the 
synodical convention that a candidate be ordained at a later date after a valid 
call has been received and accepted. 

The Examining Committee may deputize certain of its members or the 
president of the synod or the Examining Committee of another synod to act for it 
in lieu of the normal procedures described in this section. 

4. Single appearance before Examining Committee 

In exceptional cases in which for good reasons the procedure so far out- 
lined does not apply (as, for example, in the case of a candidate who decides 
belatedly to apply for ordination in a given year) the written examination is 



I 18 PROC EED INGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

to be administered on a date set by the Examining Committee which is convenient 
for the candidate. The whole remaining procedure may be combined in a single 
colloquium, with a correspondingly longer time devoted to it in order to make 
possible a more thorough examination. Either or both (the written examination 
and the colloquium) may take place at the meeting of the Examining Committee 
at which the final colloquium with other candidates is held. 

If a candidate is recommended for a call by the president of the synod 
prior to such a single appearance before the Examining Committee, it should 
always be with a clear understanding by all concerned that the candidate has 
not yet been given provisional approval by the Examining Committee. 

Section II, Item 3 of the by-laws of the church provide, with proper safe- 
guards, for the rare contingencies in which a personal appearance before an 
Examining Committee can be waived. 

5. Re-examination and renewed recommendations 

Since all actions of a synodical convention authorizing ordination ad in- 
terim expire at the beginning of the next following regular convention, it is the 
duty of the Examining Committee to have a new colloquium with the previously 
approved candidates who seek to be ordained at that time or desire to have the 
authorizations in regard to them extended for another year. The new colloquium 
will be thorough enough to satisfy the committee that the facts which led tc 
its previous favorable action have not materially changed. A new recommenda- 
tion by the committee to the synod in convention is needed in each instance. 

6. Restoration to ministry of LCA 

(LCA By-laws, Section II, Item 10: LCAM, pp. 631, 633-634) 
The president of the synod shall take the initiative in regard to all' applica- 
tions for restoration to the ministry of the LCA. Prior to giving approval to 
each such applicant, the Examining Ccmmittee shall have a thorough colloquium 
with him. 

7. Examination of a minister coming from another Lutheran church 

(1964 LCA convention minutes, pp. 613, 633, paragraphs "b" and "m") 

The colloquium of the Examining Committee with a minister applying to 
enter the LCA from another Lutheran church ought to center on the applicant's 
understanding of, acceptance of, and readiness to identify himself with the faith, 
colity and life of our church, inquiring also into the motives that have led him to 
seek to become a minister of the LCA. The committee will ascertain, by in- 
spection, that the certificate of transfer and/or standing which the applicant 
brings from the church to which he has hitherto belonged is in order. 

If the Examining Committee find affirmatively on all points, it shall in- 
dicate that fact to the president of the synod who may declare the applicant 
eligible to receive a call. Once a valid call has been received and accepted, 
the committee will either examine it or provide for proper examination of it in 
the manner described in section 3 above. 

Formal report and recommendation are to be made to the synodical con- 
vention for its action on each applicant approved by the Examining Committee. 

8. Examination of a minister coming from another denomination 

(1964 LCA convention minutes, pp. 631, paragraphs "c" and "m") 
In the case of the minister coming from another denomination, the Exam- 
ining Committee, at its first formal colloquium with him, will 

1) verify that he is submitting "documents witnessing to his past service 
in the Christian ministry, together with evidence of his previous good 
standing in the eccelesiastical body from which he has severed con- 
nection"; 

2) inquire in depth into his personal Christian beliefs, attitudes, motiva- 
tions, devotional life, concept of the ministry, and aptness to teach; 

3) explore the extent of his understanding of the faith, polity and life 
of our church, and make sure of his acceptance of and readiness to 
identify with it, giving special attention a) to the motives that have led 
him to seek to enter the ministry of the LCA, and b) his eligibility for 
it in terms of Article VII, Section 4 of the constitution of the church; 

4) when all the foregoing steps have been taken with a favorable result, 
question him sufficiently as to his theological comprehension and con- 
victions to enable the committee to decide if he should be "required 
to undertake additional theological preparation in a seminary" of the 
LCA or in lieu thereof to take "a comprehensive examination adminis- 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AME RICA 119 

terec! by an LCA seminary at the request of the Board of Theological 
Education." 

After the satisfactory completion of such "additional theological prepara- 
tion in the seminary" or upon report by the Board of Theological Education that 
the applicant has passed such a "comprehensive examination", the Examining 
Committee will meet with him again to determine, on the basis of his theological 
knowledge and personal faith as of that later date, if the way should be opened 
for him to become a minister of the Lutheran Church in America. 

If its findings are affirmative, the committee will then decide whether to 
require him "to serve an internship in a parish approved by the Board of 
Theological Education" or to indicate its judgement that he is ready to be de- 
clared eligible to receive a call. 

In the former case, a third colloquium, similar in type to the second, will 
be held following the prescribed internship period. 

The committee will proceed in respect to examining calls to such applicants 
as it does for all other candidates. The proper recommendation to the synodical 
convention concerning each such approved applicant is that he should be ordained. 
9. Relation to Committees on Church Vocations, etc. 

(LCA Executive Council minutes, April 1965, p. 344) 

A study that may lead to revised arrangements for carrying out the func- 
tions now assigned to Examining Committees and Committees on Church Vo- 
cations is in progress under the aegis of the Conference of Synodical Presidents. 
These guidelines do not attempt to anticipate or prejudge its outcome. They 
are constructed, as they must be, on the premise which is accepted at present, 
that it is beneficial to the Lutheran Church in America to have an impartial 
agency of high stature in each of the thirty-one synods, jointly appointed by the 
synod and the Executive Council of the whole LCA, for the sole purpose of safe- 
guarding the quality of spirit and mind of those admitted to minister the Word 
and the Sacraments within our church. 

Report of the Committee on Investments 

One meeting of the committee was held during the year on August 4, 1965. 
Glenn Ketner was elected chairman and presided over the meeting. 

The committee authorized surplus funds not immediately needed invested in 
short term certificates of deposit to the best advantage of the synod. Decisions 
such as amounts, length of time, and place of deposit were left to the discretion 
of a sub-committee composed of Glenn Ketner, chairman, the president and 
treasurer of synod. 

In a general discussion it was agreed to keen the committee members in- 
formed quarterly or whenever any unusual activity took place. 

GLENN E. KETNER, Chairman 
In the absence of Glenn Ketner, D.C.S., chairman, Secretary Lyerly present- 
ed the report as printed in the convention bulletin. The report was adopted. 
RECOGNITION OF VISITORS: President Whittecar recognized the following 
visitors from the S. C. Synod: the Rev. Dr. Karl W. Kinard, president, the Rev. 
Herman W. Cauble, secretary, the Reverends Guy A. Cruse, L. A. Wertz, and 
C. P. Fisher, pastors. 

Following a few announcements, Chaplain Fritz closed the first meeting with 
prayer. 

Second Meeting 

Tuesday Afternoon, May 3, 1966-1:45-4:00 P.M. 

Devotions were conducted by the convention chaplain, the Rev. R. Douglas 
Fritz. Continuing his service of meditations on the general theme "Devotions, A 
Going Thing," Chaplain Fritz spoke on "Devotions in the Narthex", accenting 
the fact that worship is never ending, and that the Narthex symbolizes contact 
with the problems and needs of the outside world. 

The president recognized the Rev. C. Marion Starr, chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Reference and Counsel, who recommended that the business of the 
synod continue as outlined for the afternoon, returning to unfinished business 
from morning schedule if possible. 

The recommendation was adopted.

Przzi that this information and education was brought to their otter.-':-. 
surely is indicated by their acceptance and response to the program. We co- 
rejoice end express our grctitude to God knowing that His Spirit has been given 
the opportunity to work in and through us os we labored for Him through this 
procrcm of CAMPUS. 

As Christians, all were challenged to grew in their ability and willingness to 
respond to the work of the Lord. An important by-product of CAMPUS beyond 
bringing understanding of the mission of the church, was the opportunity to in- 
ci cate end motivate concepts of Christicn stewardship of TIME, TALENT and 
TREASURE in many congregations. This will result in long-term benef its of an in- 
creasing ON-.ore-.ess of stewardship throughout synod. 

Whet has been gained for synod, and importantly, the man} congregations, 
represent the work of dedicated pastors and lay lecders who gave of themse /es 
of their time and talents, as well cs of their treasure. Through the inspiration z~ 
these devoted lecders one posters, Lutherans throughout synod have -esr:-oec 
in a thrilling manner. 

Now, the gains so far achieved must be kept alive and the interest loyalty 
dedicotion end devotion of the meny who participated must disc 05 <eot vibrant. 
Continuing publicity z' the -eed for student centers and other campus facilities 
should be constantly distributed throughout synod. Progress -eoorts of buUding 
plans and actual construction should be announced as frequently as possible. 

This publicity will result in a widening realization and ccncect of the rea 
mission of the church among congregations; and the desire to join '- this greater 
work of Christ will result in better stewardship pract :es. This will be re' zz~zz 
not Dnly in the on-going work of individuc' congregations but alsc richer 
and more meaningful life for them end an understanding of the out-recch of their 
church.'' 

Mr. Eastland do id tribute to the organization staff, including CAMPUS cd-

F^eijort of the Committee on 
College and University Work 

S : -ce the last meeting of synod, this committee has bee- busily involved 
with the on-going program of ministerina to students attending non-Lutheran 
co"eges end universities in this state. Two committee meetings were u e d in 
connection with this continuing program of student ministry. Our c-scs of

2. Financial aid to congregations in o'rse proximity tc nstitutions 



122 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

3. Contact Pastors for institutions having limited numbers of Lutheran 
students 
1. Agencies At- Large Institutions 

Our campus ministry is conducted through three agencies which are: 

Chapel Hill, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, the Reverend Frank C. Perry, 
Pastor. This congregation and pastor conduct the ministry to students attending 
the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. 

Durham-Greensboro Area, the Reverend William R. Patton, Pastor to Students. 
The scope of this agency necessitated the formation of "The Lutheran Student 
Foundation of Durham." This foundation is sponsored and supported by the 
Division of College and University Work, the N. C. Synod of the Lutheran 
Church in America, and the Eastern District of the American Lutheran Church. 
All three groups are concerned with the direction of the student ministry in this 
area. The organizational meeting was held on April 29, 1965, and members of 
the Board of Directors elected the following officers: The Reverend Harry H. 
Robinson, Chairman; Dr. Paul E. Lutz, Vice-Chairman; and Dr. Otto Meier, Jr., 
Secretary-Treasurer. At the same meeting, the foundation elected the Reverend 
William R. Patton to a full-time position as Pastor to Students in the Durham- 
Greensboro area. Pastor Patton is based in Durham and has as his primary re- 
sponsibilities the ministry to students at Duke University and the University of 
North Carolina at Greensboro. In addition, he is serving as a Contact Pastor for 
students at other institutions from Durham to Greensboro (N. C. College, Elon 
College, Greensboro College, Guilford College, A & T College). 

Raleigh, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, the Reverend John W. Cobb, Pastor. 

This congregation and pastor conduct a ministry to students at North Carolina 
State University as well as to those atending neighboring institutions (St. Mary's, 
Peace, Meredith, Shaw, St. Augustine's) 

Financial support for these three agencies is provided by the Division of 
College and University Work, the N. C. Synod, and the American Lutheran 
Church, and some local sources. The following is a table showing amounts of 
grants for 1 966:

The committee has filed a request with the Executive Board of Synod that a 
budget item in the amount of $16,048 for grants to agencies and congreations 
be included in the budget of the Synod for 1967 as follows: 

Chapel Hill $3,448 

Durham-Greensboro 6, 1 00 

Raleigh 2,900 

Boone 1,000 

Charlotte 600 

Greenville 1,200 

Salisbury 400 

Winston-Salem 400 

Total $16,048 

One of the major areas of responsibility for the Committee on College and 
University Work is to plan for the wise and careful expenditures of the funds 
solicited by CAMPUS. Already a tentative site for the student center at Duke 
University has been selected. At the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, 
a choice and strategically located lot was purchased in 1965 on which the center 
at that institution will be erected. 

The committee is now in the process of authorizing the establishment of 
foundations composed of pastors and laymen to proceed with the plans for the 
centers. We anticipate setting up seven local groups who wili act under the 
committee's supervision to select sites, employ architects, and prepare plans 
for the centers. At those four institutions where enlargement of existing facilities 
is planned, the pastors and church councils will oversee the planning and con- 
struction. 

This committee now faces many challenging and difficult moments ahead as 
we sincerely attempt to facilitate our Christian witness on the campuses of non- 
Lutheran colleges and universities in this state. We welcome the advice and 
assistance of all as we proceed to strengthen the student ministry. But most of 
all, we actively solicit the prayers of all friends of the N. C. Synod and of the 
campus ministry. Such prayerful support is necessary as we embark upon a bold, 
extensive plan to relate Christian doctrines to the academic communities.

124 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



Chairman Paul Lutz spoke in connection with the CAMPUS appeal, and 
presented the report of the committee on College and University Work. Dr. Lutz 
spoke of the growing needs of the Campus Ministry and the effects of the 
CAMPUS program. "Never before," he said, "has the urgent message about our 
mission concerns on the college and university campuses been so vividly pre- 
sented to so many N. C. Lutherans. We sincerely hope the success of CAMPUS 
can now be turned into physical campus facilities that will be used solely for 
glorifying God and for furthering His work. 

The Committee on College and University Work would like to make it clear 
that we believe CAMPUS has had two significant impacts on this synod: 

1. The drive has provided enough money to construct some of the projected 
facilities for our campus ministry. The impact these materialistic campus 
centers will have on the synod's work will be greater and more significant 
in a few years when you will see positive, tangible benefits from CAMPUS. 

2. This drive has instilled into many Lutherans a deeper understanding of 
what it is like to be Christ-like stewards with our time, our efforts, and 
our money. Thousands of Lutherans in this synod have experienced a 
tremendous step in our stewardship growth and maturity. 

Thousands of Lutheran students present and future, in this state, even 
hundreds of thousands cf future students will benefit directly from CAMPUS. 

He also expressed his appreciation to Director Eastland and to the entire 
leadership staff for the work done and the witness borne. 

The Rev. Donald Herb, regional secretary of the Division of College and 
University Work, National Lutheran Council, was given the convention floor. 
Dr. Lutz gave tribute to Secretary Herb for coordinating the activities of the 
committee with the wide area in which the ministry to Lutheran students is being 
conducted, with the pastors involved, and with the plans for the projected stu- 
dent centers. He made mention of the fact that Secretary Herb has accepted a 
position with Gettysburg College, and will soon be leaving this synod, and rec- 
ognized his dramatic contributions to the CAMPUS Ministry. 

Secretary Herb addressed the convention. He began by saying that the 
North Carolina Synod is the best informed synod on the CAMPUS ministry. He 
paid tribute to Campus and Contact Pastors for their dedicated services. He 
expressed high hope of a coordinated ministry with all Lutheran bodies in the 
new Lutheran Council soon to be formed replacing the National Lutheran Coun- 
cil. 

In closing the report, Dr. Lutz said that one tremendous task still confronts 
this committee and that deals with the wise, careful expenditures of monies 
raised by CAMPUS. This committee and the Executive Board of Synod have spent 
several years in outlining and studying the campus ministry program. We are 
now in complete agreement as to where the campus facilities should be built and 
the genercl nature of these centers. Even so, the committee plans to visit all 
eleven campuses in May and June and make certain of the scope of our work 
and the kinds of facilities that would serve these instructions more effectively. 

We will soon be in the process of establishing foundations of local laymen 
and pastors to oversee the details of planning and erecting the campus facilities. 

Dr. F. L. Conrad was recoognized and said that while the Lutheran Church 
began in a university it was now returning to the university, and urged the synod 
to meet the challenge by continuing to press the appeal until success is sure. 

On motion of Pastor David Keck, the report of the committee was approved 
by a standing vote expressing appreciation to Paul Lutz for his untiring efforts in 
the campaign. 

Report of Board of Trustees, Lenoir Rhyne College 

This report of the Board of Trustees covers the audited financial affairs 
of Lenoir Rhyne Colege for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1965, academic 
and related information for the year 1965-1966, and general information about 
the College for the period since the last annual report to synod. 

BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

The officers of the Board are: Harry E. Isenhour, LL.D., Chairman, 

Robert R. Rhyne, Sr., Vice-Chairman, the Reverend Albert H. Keck, Jr., D.D., 
Secretary; and O. Leonard Moretz, Treasurer. Miss Gladys Barger is Treasurer 
of the College. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 125 

Regular meetings of the Board were held March 26, 1965, and October 22, 
1965. A called meeting was conducted January 28, 1966 Much of the 
essential work of the Board is performed between meetings through its com- 
mittees. While all standing committees perform duties which require periodic 
meetings, more frequent sessions are necessary for the Buildings and Grounds, 
the Finance and Investment, and the Executive Committees. 

Revised by-laws of the College were adopted by the Board March 26, 1965, 
following a thorough study. The purpose of the revision was to bring the By- 
laws into harmony with the Charter as amended following the constitution of 
the Synod under the Lutheran Church in America, and to improve various or- 
ganizational relationships and procedures in the operation of the Board. 

The last meeting of Synod elected the Reverend Hoyle L. Whiteside, S.T.M., 
and Hubert V. Pork, Ph.D., to membership on the Board; and the following 
were re-elected: the Reverend J. Frank Davis, D.D.; the Reverend R. Douglas 
Fritz; Ray W. Cline; Glenn R. Frye, M.D., L.L.D.; Glenn E. Ketner, D.C.S; and 
O. Leonard Moretz 

The terms of the following Board members expire with the 1966 meeting 
of Synod: the Reverend Dwight Conrad; the Reverend Samuel L. Sox, D.D.; 
the Reverend Walter N. Yount; Harry M. Arndt; Luther G. Boliek; H. E. Isen- 
hour, LL.D.; Wallace Jorgenson; and Paul Lutz, Ph.D. 

CURRENT OPERATION 

The student enrollment for the first semester of this academic year was 
1238, the highest in the history of the College. The enrollment for the second 
semester is 1197. The 1965 Summer Session had an enrollment of 848 in the 
first term and 571 in the second term, giving a combined total of 962 exclusive 
of duplicates. This represents an increase of 84 over the combined total of 878 
for the two summer sessions of 1964. The number graduating with the bachelor's 
degree during 1965 was 290. 

Evening classes started in January, 1965, are continuing this semester. En- 
rollment for the second semester lest year was 109; the first semester this year, 
82. The enrollment for the current semester is 68. 

The operating statement for the fiscal year-ended June 30, 1965, shows 
an income of $1,931,204.11, and total expenditures of $1,912,685.28, resulting 
in a net gain of $18,518.83 in the Current Fund for the year. Operating in- 
come included $67,880.32 from General Endowment, $10,948.18 from Ford 
Foundation Fund, $9,000.00 from the Martin Luther Stevens Fund, and $27,- 
516.48 from the North Carolina Foundation of Church-Related Colleges. 

FACULTY AMD STAFF 

The College added twelve new faculty members for the year 1965-1966. 
Six replace instructors who have retired from teaching, moved elsewhere, or 
have died. One is serving while the regular faculty member is on leave for 
additional graduate work. Five, including two part-time instructors in even- 
ing classes, have been added for the enrichment of the college program. The 
faculty now numbers 72 full-time and eight part-time teachers. 

Two additional persons have been added to the library staff, one to that 
of the registrar's office, and one to the staff in the public relations office. 

Increasing enrollments during the next few years will necessitate the addition 
of faculty members. As this trend is universal, the College is confronted now, 
and will be confronted more seriously in the future, with the problem of securing 
a competent faculty in a highly competitive market. An adequate budget is 
essential if this crisis is to be met. 

ENDOWMENT FUND 

The Board has continued the services of the First National Bank of 
Catawba County, under the advisory counsel of Standard & Poor, as managing 
agent for the Regular Endowment and the Ford Foundation Funds. The 
auditor's statement included in this report shows the value of the funds as of 
June 30, 1965. The Standard & Poor evaluation as of December 31, 1965, 
shows the following: Regular Endowment (market value) $1,105,218.00; Ford 
Foundation Fund, $286,102.00. In addition, the audit of June 30, 1965, 
shows other endowment assets of $389,964.84 which are under the direct 



126 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

management of the Committee on Finance and Investment of the Board. The 
Martin Luther Stevens Trust Fund, which is under the exclusive management of 
the Wachovia Bank and Trust Co., Asheville, has a value of $224,534.03, the 
income of which is an endowment for the Martin Luther Stevens Professorship. 

Additions to the Endowment are being made as funds become available. 
Every effort should be made to increase the endowment to the point that it is 
commensurate with the enrollment. 

FUND FOR PROGRESS 

The 1963 Campaign is providing funds which are helping to meet some of 
the capital needs of the College. The total pledged in the appeal reached 
$1,806,361.86. Receipts amounted to $1,394,184.56 on February 18, 1966. 
Although the campaign date for pledges is rapidly expiring, the importance of 
receiving the balance due of every pledge cannot be overemphasized. The 
pledge for $150,000.00 from the Carl A. Rudisill Foundation included in the 
balance due will be secured when the library project gets under way. 

EXPANSION OF FACILITIES 

During the past year renovations and improvements have been made in 
several areas: (1) Four tennis courts and a paved parking area have been 
constructed adjacent to Shuford Gymnasium at a cost of $24,300.00. These 
courts have been built to tournament specifications complete with fencing and 
landscaping. The small parking area is a beginning in the attempt to solve 
the problem of where to park vehicles on campus. (2) After the administrative 
offices were moved from the Rhyne Building, the space occupied by administra- 
tive offices was renovated into three classrooms and office space for twelve 
faculty members. 

CARL A. RUDISILL LIBRARY 

On January 28, 1966, the Board of Trustees awarded a contract for the 
expansion and renovation of the Carl A. Rudisill Library. The contract will 
provide reader space for 375 students, and shelving for a collection of 120,000 
volumes. It will make provision for technical resources for a library program 
to serve a possible enrollment of 1,500 students. The entire building will be 
air conditioned, and the old portion will be re-lighted. Work will get underway 
this spring, and will be completed by September, 1967. 

The same contract covers work to complete unfinished basement areas of 
Minges Science Building. This expansion will provide a faculty office, two lecture- 
laboratories, and a preparation - research room. An observatory dome and a 
telescope will be placed on the roof. The work on Minges Science Building 
will be completed during the coming summer. 

The cost, estimated at $760,000.00, including furniture and equipment, 
will be financed by a Federal grant of $218,000.00, contributions from the 
1963 Fund for Progress campaign, and the General Building Fund of the College. 
Two significant contributions toward the library building have been received: 
cne in the amount of $150,000.00 from the Carl A. Rudisill Foundation, and the 
ether from the Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation for $30,000.00. The 
original library building was constructed in 1943 and was a gift of Mr. and 
Mrs. Carl A. Rudisill, of Cherryville, and their children, Mr. and Mrs. T. W. 
Borland and Mr. and Mrs. Ben Rudisill. 

TRIBUTE TO DR. W. K. MAUNEY 

Dr. W. K. Mauney, Kings Mountain, N. C, resigned from his unexpired 
term in 1965 because of failing health which prevented him from participating 
as fully as he desired in board activities. Dr. Mauney became a member of the 
board in 1925 and rendered continuous service in this capacity for forty years. 
In addition to his personal service, his financial support was extraordinary in 
regularity and generousity. He was elected by the board as member Emeritus 
for life. 

SEVENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

September 1, 1966, marks the Seventy-fifth Anniversary of the opening of 
Lenoir Rhyne College. 

In observance, the College is engaged in a twelve-month celebration. The 
President spoke at the opening convocation of the seventy-fifth academic session 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMER ICA L27 

on September 9, 1965, to launch the commemoration. One year later, a birthday 
celebration and special convocation on September 11, 1966, will climax the ob- 
servance. Principal speaker for the event will be Dr. Werner von Braun, director 
of the George E. Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Alabama. 

Between the two dates, varied events are taking place to recall past 
achievements and to chart future improvements. The anniversary sets the 
theme for Homecoming and Spring Festival weekend, and will provide the motif 
for the college's entertainment of delegates and visitors attending this convention 
of the synod. Events of Alumni Day on May 28 will center on the events and 
personalities in the history of the college. The seventy-fifth commencement, 
May 29-30, will feature two distinguished speakers: Dr. Franklin Clark Fry, 
president of the Lutheran Church in America, will deliver the baccalaureate 
sermon on May 29; Dr. D. Elton Trueblood, professor of philosophy at Earlham 
College, Richmond, Indiana, will present the commencement address on May 30. 
The anniversary is also being noted during the year with wide distribution of two 
special Lenoir Rhyne audio-visuals: a sound film produced by the Jefferson 
Standard Foundation of Charlotte, and a sound filmstrip produced by the College. 

Not all is festive. "Project 75th: Dialogues/Directions" is introspective. 
This series of eight symposia is helping the Lenoir Rhyne community explore 
ways the church-related college can improve its service to the church, education, 
the arts, the realm of the intellect, science, the business community, and public 
affairs. An authority in the related field leads each discussion. The guest 
speakers have included Dr. Francis Gamelin, executive secretary of the Board of 
College Education and Church Vocations of the Lutheran Church in America; Dr. 
Vittorio Giannini, president of the North Carolina School of the Arts, Winston- 
Salem; Terry Sanford, former governor of North Carolina; Dr. William F. Little, 
chairman of the DeDartment of Chemistry, University of North Carolina ar Chapel 
Hill; Dr. Lois Edinger, immediate past president of the National Education 
Association; and Luther Hodges, former governor of North Carolina, former 
U. S. Secretary of Commerce, and now chairman of the board of the Research 
Triangle Foundation of North Carolina. The project is scheduled to climax this 
month when national leaders come to the campus to form a symposium review 
panel and help summarize the total effort. It is hoped that published proceed- 
ings of all the discussions will not only lay the foundation for additional self- 
study at Lenoir Rhyne but make a worthy contribution to the field of Christian 
higher education in America. 

We regard the followinq item in last year's report to be of such importance 
thct we are repeating it verbatim. 

The Board requests the Synod to approve the increased item for the College 
in the proposed synodical budget. The growth of the Institution, both in number 
of students and in physical plant, requires a Icrger faculty and administrative 
staff, as well as higher expenditures for plant operation. These items are 
normal to a growing institution. It is essential that the synod and the congre- 
gation provide the additional support so urgently needed. 

A consolidated balance sheet with auditor's certificate is attached for your 
consideration.

Report on Examination or Accounts 

We have examined the balance sheet statement of Lenoir Rhyne College, 
Hickory, North Carolina, as of June 30, 1965, and the related operating state- 
ment of income and expenditures, and changes in fund balances for the year then 
ended. Our examination was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing 
standards, and accordingly included such tests of the accounting records and such 
auditing procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We made 
a similar examination for the year ended June 30, 1964. 

In accordance with practices followed by nonprofit educational institutions, 
no provision has been made for depreciation of educational plant nor has 
accrued interest receivable on investments or prepaid expenses been given effect 
in the accounts. 

In our opinion, the accompanying comparative balance sheet and operating 



128 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



statements, and related notes, present fairly the financial position of Lenoir 
Rhyne College at June 30, 1965 and 1964, and the results of its operations 
for the years ended those dates, and were prepared in conformity with accounting 
practice generally followed by educational institutions applied on a consistent 
basis for the two years.

* Market values of securities increased $119,899.95 during the year. This increase rep- 
resented a decline in market values of $26,015.94 and a net increase in investment in 
securities of $145,915.89. 

The report was presented by H. E. Isenhour, LL.D., chairman of the Board, 
who expressed profound regrets for the absence of the Rev. Dr. Voigt R. Cromer, 
president of the college, due to illness, but conveyed to the convention a mes- 
sage from Dr. Cromer that his heart and spirit were in the convention. 

Chairman Isenhour reviewed the items of the report accenting the seventy- 
fifth anniversary year of the founding of the college. 

Dr. Isenhour recognized the contributions of W. K. Mauney, LL.D. for his 
forty years of continuous service on the Board of Trustees, and the following 
testimonial is to be inserted in the Report of the Board of Trustees. 

"Dr. W. K. Mauney, Kings Mountain, N. O, resigned from his un- 
expired term in 1965 because of failing health which prevented him 
from participating as fully as he desired in board activities. Dr. 
Mauney became a member of the board in 1925 and rendered con- 
tinuous service in this capacity for forty years. In addition to his 
personal service, his financial support was extraordinary in regularity 
and generosity. He was elected by the board as member Emeritus for 
life. 

Others recognized for their outstanding contributions were Prof. E. L. 
Setzler, Prof. G. R. Patterson, and Miss Gladys Barger, representing a total of 
125 years of service to the college. 

Mr. Jeff Norris was recognized for announcements regarding the entertain- 
ment of convention delegates and guests at the college. 

He announced that a film and tape had been produced and financed by the 
Jefferson Standard Foundation on the college motto "The Truth Shall Make 
You Free" as a service to the college during its anniversary celebration, and 
acknowledged the contribution of Mr. Wallace Jorgenson, a member of the 
College Board of Trustees, in its production. 

Mr. Harry Livingood, Business Manager of the college, was also recognized 
and gcve a listing of college activities planned for late Tuesday afternoon and 
evening for convention delegates and guests. 

On motion of Pastor Dwight Conrad, Sec. Lyerly was instructed to pen 
an appropriate letter to Dr. Cromer conveying the synod's regrets for his absence 
and hopes for his speedy recovery. 

The report was adopted by a rising vote as a gesture of appreciation for 
the relentless leadership of Dr. Isenhour as chairman of the board. 



Report of 
Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary 

Controlling thought as we begin the review of a Seminary year is the 
thankfulness we owe to Christ and His Church for the unnumbered blessings we 
have had at their hands. Gratitude becomes a kind of rhapsody, because the 
evidence of goodness and mercy following our school day by day are so bountiful. 

This is clearly apparent, for example, in the increcsed number of students 
who have come to Southern Seminary to prepare for ordination. The current 
school year's entering group, numbering 50, was the largest in our 135 year 
history. An analysis of 1965-66 enrollment follows:

These students come from 16 states and Japan. There are graduates of 
50 colleges and universities; 43 among undergraduates; 7 additional schools are 
represented by graduate students; 42 come from Lenoir Rhyne College; 32 
from Newberry College and 1 from Roanoke College. Five non-Lutherans are 
among the undergraduates, viz, Baptist, Episcopal, Methodist and Presbyterian. 
One undergraduate is from the American Lutheran Church and one from the 
Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. 

Of the regular and special students 63 are married. They have 50 chil- 
dren. The wives of 45 students work outside their home. Twenty married and 
9 single students, 7 of them are girls, live in Columbia off-campus. (This points 
the need for additional student housing.) The entire Seminary community, ex- 
cepting graduate students, numbers 294 persons. 

In the aggregate 81 students enrolled in the three Graduate School terms: 
Spring 26, Summer 31, Fall 24. Twenty ministers of non-Lutheran church 
bodies were enrolled in the 1965 Graduate School sessions. 

BUDGET: IN BALANCE 

The goodwill expressed in the financial support given us by more than 
700 congregations in the five synods of the southeastern U.S.A. sustains our 
thankfulness. A discerning study of the report of our Treasurer, Mr. N. E. Der- 
rick, and of the Appeal Fund as presented by Mrs. Dorothy S. Keller at the end 
of this record will show that our receipts continue to be encouraging, and enable 
us practically to balance our carefully controlled budget. 



FACULTY FACTS 

Faculty expansion helped to make 1965 a notable year. With the coming 
of Associate Professor, the Rev. Austin Focht Shell, M.A., to develop the De- 
partment of Pastoral Care, and of Mr. Gordon Alexander Beaver, M.M.S., both 
to offer courses in Church Music and give pipe organ and piano instruction, im- 
portant new strengths have been added to the Seminary's teaching staff. Field 
work, clinical training and preaching assignments are also in Associate Professor 
Shell's portfolio. 



132 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

Three members of the faculty have finished course work in their Doctor of 
Philosophy programs. They are now in the process of completing their doctoral 
theses, viz. the Rev. John Benjamin Bedenbaugh, the Rev. Harold Franklin Park 
and the Rev. Austin Focht Shell. 

"DEAN-ELECT BOST" 

The Rev. Dr. Raymond Morris Bost, since 1960 a Professor in the Depart- 
ment of Church History, and Professor of Missions, has received and accepted 
a call to become Academic Dean at our sister institution, Lenoir Rhyne College, 
in Hickory, North Carolina. Dr. Bost will begin his new ministry in mid-summer 
of 1966. Besides the highly effective teaching done by him at the Seminary, he 
has made outstanding contributions to the development of the Seminary's field 
work, clinical training and internship programs. Dr. Bost's vigorous and crea- 
tive interest in the history of the Lutheran Church in the southeast is proven 
by the fact that his Yale University doctoral thesis was focused on John Bach- 
man, an ecclesiastical and educational pioneer of this area. In the departure 
of the Bosts the Seminary will have an additional serious loss in that Mrs. Bost 
has for two years been the capable and wise Secretary to the Faculty. Dr. Bost 
will bring to his new post a blend of professional and personal gifts fitting exactly 
its requirements. His erstwhile colleagues commend him to his new ones with 
admiration and affection. 

DR. CREAGER "SCORES" 

We co^ratulate the "Senoir" of our faculty, the Rev. Dr. Harold Luther 
Creager, who is in the twentieth year of his scholarly tenure. Dr. and Mrs. 
Creager continue vigorously with their solicitude and thoughtfulness for the 
Seminary's entire personnel. 

LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS 

Assistant Professor James Obert Kempson is in consultation with the South 
Carolina Educational Television authorities on a plan for the possible develop- 
ment, in consultation with the Department of the ministry of the National Coun- 
cil of the Churches of Christ in the U.S.A., of an educational TV program for 
ministers in the area of Pastoral Care. 

Professor George Frederick Schott, Secretary of the Faculty, and Chairman 
of its Committee on Curriculum, is guiding the completion of the new curriculum 
which will go into effect in September, 1967. That curriculum will: reduce the 
number of class lecture hours; proviOe a significant increase in seminars; cor- 
relate off-campus instruction and practice with academic instruction; make 
available a choice between thesis writing and six credit hours of electives; and 
will markedly increase the number of elective courses. An experiment in applying 
two phases of the new curriculum, i.e., reduction in the number of lecture hours, 
and more extensive use of guided reading and seminars, is being conducted with 
the 1966 Senior class in its final quarter year. Prof. Hugh George Anderson 
provided the basic structure for this experiment. 

Beginning in 1967 applicants for admission to LTSS will be required to have 
had two years of college Greek (or its equivalent) for admission. To aid those 
deficient in their preparation in Greek, Assistant Professor James Stroud Aull will 
again conduct at the Seminary a "cram course" in Beginner's Greek, July 18 
to August 27, Mondays through Saturday. In that period the equivalent of one 
academic year's work is covered. 

POST-ORDINATION LEARNING 

Southern Seminary's continuing education program for ordained ministers is 
expanding and intensifying. June 6-16, 1966 will find an Institute of thirty 
pastors and six staff persons conducting this project according to the new 
format, worked out by the Board of Theological Education in conference with 
the directors of these Institutes throughout the LCA — Professors Schott and 
Kempson are injecting new procedures into the ten day Southern Seminar on 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 133 



Theology in Life conducted annually at Lutheridge, Arden, North Carolina, for 
twelve pastors who are in the early years of their ministry. — Under the direction 
of Prof. Anderson and Assistant Professor Park the "Southern Scholars" program 
has fully justified in the second year of this experiment the hopes that launched 
it. The Board of Theological Education is the joint sponsor. In three groups of 
six, four and five ministers respectively, eight to ten days were spent literally 
"living" in the Seminary's library, in a few group consultations and in colloquia 
with faculty members. The "Scholars", recognized in advance as academic 
"self starters," have found these to be exhilerating days. 

The mainstays of our continuing education for ministers are the sessions of 
our Graduate School at the Seminary itself and at Roanoke College, Salem, 
Virginia. Through a $7,500 grant successfully solicited from the LCa Bocrd of 
College Education and Church Vocations by Roanoke College's President, Perry 
F. Kendig, Ph.D., the college Librarian, Mrs. Lucile D. Snow, in consultation with 
LTSS Librarian Wiliam Richard Fritz, has established at its new library a section 
containing a basic theological library intended in large part for use by our 
Graduate School extension. The 1966 Roanoke dates are July 5 to July 23. 
Lecturers will be: Professor John Benjamin Bedenbaugh, "Christ and His Church: 
Studies in New Testament Theology"; Assistant Professor Harold Franklin Park, 
"Problems in Parish Education"; Guest Lecturer, Eric W. Gritsch, Ph.D., Pro- 
fessor of Church History, Lutheran Theological Seminary, Gettysburg, Penn- 
sylvania, "Martin Luther's Early Theological Development." 

The Columbia, South Carolina, dates are May 30 to June 17 with the follow- 
ing professors participating: Richard Carl Hoefler, D.D., "The Gospel and the 
Church Year"; Raymond Morris Bost, Ph.D., "Theology and Cultural Change"; 
Guest Lecturer, the Rev. Paul Wiliam Ozias Heist, D.D., Pastor, St. John Lu- 
theran Church, Martins Ferry, Ohio, "Study of the Johnnine Literature." 

PURCHASE OF PROPERTIES 

In the year under review the seminary has purchased two houses and lots 
in Columbia, South Carolina, one, at 930 Brantley Street, as a residence for 
Associate Professor Austin Focht Shell and his family; the other at 909 Hillcrest 
Avenue (three lots west of the Seminary Library) to be used as a duplex for 
married students. (Over thirty students must now live in off-campus housing). 
The latter lot will, we trust, eventually be combined with adjacent properties for 
expansion of seminary housing. 

CHANGE OF PILOT 

At the May 19, 1965 meeting of the Board of Trustees the Rev. Dr. Luther 
Boyd Hamrn, the then President of the Board of Trustees, submitted his resigna- 
tion inasmuch as he was moving to Hickory, North Carolina, to serve as Assistant 
Pastor of Bethany Lutheran Church and could therefore not continue as an electee 
of the South Carolina Synod. The board paid glowing tribute to Dr. Hamm for 
his four years of skillful and high-hearted leadership. It then elected the Rev. 
J. Luther Mauney, D.D., L.H.D., President of the Board, for a term of three 
years. Dr. Mauney, an alumnus of the Seminary, is the President of the Vir- 
ginia Synod. 

WOMEN'S AUXILIARY: A WINNING TEAM 

Year after year the Seminary's Women's Auxiliary makes possible our pur- 
chase of new facilities and devices that modernize and maintain our property. 
Beautification of the campus is aiso a prominent interest of these open-handed 
ladies. A recently prepared film strip picturing numerous projects completed by 
them reveals the variety and volume of help that comes from this corps of co- 
operators. Mrs. Aubrey Mauney and Mrs. Deems Haltiwanger are, respectively; 
President and Chairman of the Projects Committee. 

THAT EXALTING CHAPEL 

As this report is written the builders are about to pour the concrete which 
will complete the last "deck" of the Seminary's new chapel. Several serious 



1 34 P ROC E ED ING SjD F THE N ORTH CAROL I NA SYNOD 

delays have been experienced in the first eleven months of the building process, 
but these have not been without their contribution to the basic solidity of the 
structure. A sub-contractor, who will have to do with auxiliary rather than essential 
structure, says of the new chapel: "It is Columbia's most substantially built 
building." The mass and "lift" of the edifice are already apparent and the 
completion of a building matching our great expectations is probably not more 
than ten or twelve months away. The Rev. Herman W. Cauble, Chairman of 
the Chapel Planning and Building Committee, the Rev. Dr. A. Kenneth Hewitt, 
Chairman of the Chapel Memorials Committee, and the Rev. Dr. Richard C. 
Hoefler continue to give this exciting project their informed and dedicated lead- 
ership. 

COMMENCEMENT UPLIFT 

Our hope is that hundreds of alumni and friends will be with us at Com- 
me ncement, May 26, 1966, to see the chapel's towering arches in their unfinish- 
ed form. This will heighten joy in the granduer to be seen later on Dedication 
Day. Also adorning Commencement this year will be two distinguished speak- 
ers, viz: The Rev. Hagen A. K. Staack, Ph.D., of Muhlenberg College, the Com- 
mencement Week lecturer; and Chaplain John D. Keister of Roanoke College, who 
will bring the message at the Commencement service.

LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 137 



AUDITOR'S STATEMENT 

We have examined this preliminary statement of current fund cash receipts and 
disbursements for the Year 1965 and confirmed the cash balances at December 31, 1965; 
and, in our opinion, all recorded cash receipts and disbursements are properly accounted 
for. 

CARL M. DERRICK, C.P.A. 
Columbia, S. C. 
February 4, 1966 

We pledge to you anew our continuing loyalty to carrying out the responsi- 
bilities with which you have invested us. 

J. LUTHER MAUNEY, President 
Board of Trustees 

F. EPPLING REINARTZ, President 
Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary 

In a moving report of seminary activities and functions, Dr. F. Eppling 
Reintartz, president, paid tribute to the synod for its support in finances and per- 
sonnel. He characterized the seminary style of life in terms of freedom, integ- 
rity, end community. 

In connection with the report, the Rev. John L. Yost, Jr., D.D., reported 
that $6,300 had been raised toward an alumni goal of $7,000 for pews for the 
new seminary chapel. 

On motion of Pastor Walter Yount, the report was adopted. 

AMENDMENTS TO THE BY-LAWS 

Buchman S. Brown submitted the following by-law amendments. 
That Section l-D-2 of the by-laws be amended by striking the present sec- 
tion and inserting in its place the following: 

2. "The report of the Executive Board shall be published in the bulletin. 
Only those items of the report requiring approval of the convention shall be 
called to the attention of the convention for action. Other items may be called 
to the attention of the convention, but shall be received as information without 
action by virtue of their being published in the bulletin. The president may 
designate various members of the Executive Board to present parts of the report 
to the convention." 

That Section 1 -D-7 of the by-laws be amended by striking all of sub-item 
b. and relettering the remaining subsections in proper order. 

That Section l-E-2 of the by-laws be amended by designating the present 
Section 2 as Section 2 a. and adding the following as Section b: 

b. "When is becomes evident that a ministerial or lay delegate elected 
by this synod is unable to be in attendance prior to the afternoon session on the 
third day of the convention of the Lutheran Church in America, and no elected 
alternate is available, the president of the synod may appoint a substitute." 

The afternoon meeting was adjourned at 4:00 o'clock to permit convention 
delegates to participate in the events planned by Lenoir Rhyne College, host for 
the evening. 

Chaplain Fritz dismissed the convention with prayer. 



Third Meeting 



Tuesday evening, May 3, 1966-7:30-9:30 o'clock 
P. E. Monroe Auditorium, Lenoir Rhyne College 

Earlier in the afternoon convention delegates were given guided tours of 
Lenoir Rhyne College and were dinner guests in the college cafeteria. 

The program began at 7:30 p.m. The Convention shared with the students, 
faculty, and administration of Lenoir Rhyne College one of the events in the 
celebration of Lenoir Rhyne's 75th Anniversary year. 



138 PROCEED INGS O F THE NORTH CAROLI NA SYNOD 

Music from "The Sound of Music" by the Lenoir Rhyne Voice Ensemble 
brought a standing ovation from the convention. The colorful costumes, ex- 
cellent instrumental, musical background, and lovely lilting voices brought joy 
to the hearts of the listening audience. 

The voice of Dr. Voigt R. Cromer was heard from a recording made at his 
home. A hush fell on the group in respect and admiration as he welcomed the 
convention and commended the N. C. Synod for its nurture and support of 
Lenoir Rhyne College. He expressed his disappointment that he could not be 
present. 

At 8 p.m. the Anniversary Program, "Lenoir Rhyne College: Reflections of 
The Times," by Glenn and Jackie Sumpter, presented by the Lenoir Rhyne Play- 
makers and Department of Music, took the Convention back seventy-five years 
to hardships, growth, personal criticism, humor, downfalls and mountain peaks. 

This presentation gave keen insights and appreciation of the synod's college. 

To climax the evening program, the convention delegates and visitors sang 
"A Mighty Fortress is Our God." 

At 9:15 p.m. refreshments and fellowship were shared in the Voigt R. 
Cromer Center. 

Ballot boxes were closed thirty minutes following the historical presenta- 
tion. 



Fourth Meeting 



(Wednesday Morning, May 4, 1966-9:00 -12:00 Noon) 

Devotions, consisting of the Morning Suffrages, including Psalm 121 and 
the Lesson from Lamentations 3:22-24, were conducted by the convention 
chaplain, R. Douglas Fritz. The meditation theme, "Devotions in the Morning" 
accented the importance of setting the tone of the day through devotions in 
the morning, and that the Christian life is a perpetual morning. "This is the day 
which the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it." 

Reference and Counsel — Reporting for the Committee on Reference and 
Counsel, Chairman C. Marion Starr recommended that the convention proceed 
with business as outlined in the convention bulletin on Wednesday morning. 

The recommendation was adopted. 

Minutes and Unfinished Business — Chairman Karl Dunn of the Committee 
on Minutes and Unfinished Business reported approximately 450 copies of the 
minutes of the Opening Service of Holy Communion and the First Meeting, held 
Tuesday Morning, had been printed and distributed to the convention delegates. 
A few corrections were made to these minutes. 

The minutes of the Opening Service and First Meeting were approved as 
corrected.

President Whittecar declared those receiving the necessary majority of votes 
cast duly elected as so designated in the report, and instructed delegates to be 
prepared to cast their second ballots during the lunch hour. 

Pastor Dwight Conrad of the host church directed delegates to the table 
which had been set up in the plaza for voting purposes. 

Secretary Lyeriy, recognized for remarks regarding his re-election, thanked 
the delegates for their vote of confidence as expressed by their voting, but said 
that he had mixed emotions over his re-election. He said that while it had been 
a joy to serve cs synod's secretary in the varied areas of responsibility assigned 
him, he expressed preference for parish work and especially mission development 
as being his first love. He referred to the many opportunities for field services in 
the office which kept him in close touch with parish life and the multiple con- 
tacts with the constituency of the synod which had increased his spiritual stature. 
He said that he would continue to serve in this office until the Lord called him 
to another field of service. 

President Whittecar greeted and congratulated Secretary Lyerly upon his 
re-election, and expressed gratification upon his acceptance. 

Amendment' cf By-Laws: Secretary Lyerly presented Recommendation 2 of 
the Executive Board and moved that By-Law Section 1 -D-3 be amended by 
striking the words, "thirty minutes" and inserting the words, "the time alloted 
by the Executive Board, which would cause the By-Law to read: 

"Reports from institutions and committees shall be limited to the time 

alloted by the Executive Board unless the occasion demands an extension 

of time granted by the president. Greetings shall be limited to five 

minutes." 

Due notice had been served of this by-law amendment on the previous day. 

Recommendation 2 was adopted and By-Law l-D-3 was amended. 

Report of Committee on Social Ministry 

The Committee has held three meetings since the Burlington Convention of 
Synod, May 3-6, 1965. These meetings were held at the Church House, Salis- 
bury, on June 21, 1965, October 12, 1965, and March 22, 1966. 

This was a year of changing personnel for the Social Ministry Committee. 
Four new clerical members were welcomed to the committee replacing men who 
had moved to other districts, and four new members, three lay and one clerical, 
were welcomed to the committee as a result of new district elections. 

The work of the committee is organized with the following sub-committees: 
Human Relations, Ministry to Aged, Ministry to Children, Program and Projects, 
and Chaplaincy Service. At least two members of the Committee serve on each 
sub-committee. The committee's report to the synod is submitted under the fol- 
lowing headings: 

!. PROGRAM AND ACTIVITIES 
A. Committee Workshop with BSM Representatives October 12, 1965: A team 
visit from the LCA Board of Social Ministry with the N. C. Synod committee 
was a feature of the year to better prepare the Synod's Social Ministry Com- 
mittee for its responsibilities. On October 12, 1965, Dr. Harold Haas, Ex- 
ecutive Secretary of the BSM; Dr. Cedric Tilberg, Secretary, Program and 
Leadership; and the Rev. Carl Thomas, Secretary Agencies and Institutions, 
met with the committee in an all day session. They stated the role of the 
Social Ministry Committee of the synod is that of an enabler and stimulator 
and defined Social Ministry as the involvement of the Church of Jesus 
Christ in the v/orld as it serves persons with special needs and participates 
responsibly in the Social Order.

with Synod action in Burlington. The Reverend J. White Iddings, D.D., 
began his work as Chaplain July 1, 1965, and was installed at a special 
service at St. Paul's Lutheran Church on August 29, 1965. According to the 
Job Analysis, a Lutheran Institution Chaplaincy Advisory Committee was 
established and has held regular meetings in assisting Chaplain Iddings as 
he began this ministry. From July through December, 1965, Dr. Iddings 
served 402 Lutheran patients and 183 non-Lutheran patients. This ministry 
includes counseling sessions for patients and their families, the Sacrament 
of Holy Communioon on request, regular visitation, etc. Through our 
Chaplain, we are providing a most worthwhile ministry. The financial ar- 
rangement for this Chaplaincy program is as follows: 

1. The program is financed by the N. C. Synod and the Board of Social 
Ministry of the LCA. In 1965 funds from the Board amounted to $5,- 
250.00 and funds from the Michael Peeler income for this ministry 
were $3,081.87. 

2. The total budget for this ministry is $10,500.00 including salary, hous- 
ing, travel, pension payments, materials, printing, contingencies.

III. SOCIAL MINISTRY INSTITUTIONS 

A — Report of the Board of Trustees 
Of North Carolina Lutheran Homes 

The report of the North Carolina Lutheran Homes Board of Trustees covers 
the actions of the Board since its report to the 1965 convention of Synod and, 
during this same period, reports on the operation of the Hickory Unit, activities 
of the Executive Director and the promotion of the Albemarle Unit. The 
financial statements are for the fiscal year, January 1 to December 31, 1965. 



144 PROC E E DINGS OF THE NORTH CA R OLINA SYNO D 

1. THE BOARD AND ORGANIZATION. The Board of Trustees held three 
meetings since the last report: May 26, 1965, September 17, 1965; and 
February 22, 1966. 

At the Annual meeting, May 26, 1965, the Board elected the following 
officers: President, Rev. John A. Pless; Vice-President, Rev. Robert N. Peery; 
Treasurer, Mr. Wallace W. Gee; and Secretary, Mr. Ray A. Cline. Other mem- 
bers of the Board are Rev. Harry H. Robinson, Rev. Olin W. Sink, Rev. John K. 
Lasley, D.D., Mr. Dewey F. Beam, Mr Joe A. Moretz and Mrs. Ernest W. Riden- 
hour, whose terms expire in 1966, Rev. C. R. Patterson, Mrs. G. R. Patterson, 
Miss Annie Glass Roediger, Rev. Jacob L. Lackey, Rev. John H. Sigman, Mr. 
H. D. Frye, Jr., and Mr. Aubrey Mauney. 

2. FINANCIAL SUPPORT for the Lutheran Homes program has been both 
substantial and encouraging. Support through apportionment payments in- 
creased over 1964 and contributions by churches, organizations and individuals 
were also larger. The total amount received in 1965 for all purposes was 
$102,092.43. Of this amount, $96,582.37 went into the general fund and 
$5,510.06 was designed for the Albemarle Unit, (Audit, Treasurer's Fund State- 
ment, page 4). Most of the contributions by individuals and groups were 
designated memorial gifts, a method of honoring the memories of loved ones 
and friends which is deeply appreciated and enthusiastically recommended. 

3. THE INDEBTEDNESS ON THE HICKORY UNIT, reported January 1, 
1965, as being $95,000.00, has been reduced to $20,000, as of April 1, 1966. 
The balance would be smaller if quarterly payments had not been suspended July 
1st in anticipation of the need of funds for extensive improvements at the 
Hickory Unit. Special efforts are being made to reduce the balance and, if 
possible, to retire the remaining obligation by the time Synod convenes. 

4. PROGRESS REPORT ON THE ALBEMARLE PROJECT. Solicitation of 
support for the Albemarle Unit by the Executive Director, as authorized by the 
Board of Trustees, was begun in July, 1965. As of February 15, 1966, a total 
of $48,889.00 had been committed to this cause. Of the total commitment, 
$12,454.00 has been paid. Solicitation is continuing in the hope that this 
second unit of N. C. Lutheran Homes can be erected before the synod-wide 
capital funds campaign, scheduled for 1969, is conducted. 

5. LONG RANGE PLANNING — The Board of Trustees is seeking a plan 
to guide in the selection of sites for additional units of Lutheran Homes. A 
special committee of the Board on long range planning, after making a study, 
recommended that the third unit be located in the Salisbury area and reported 
that consideration had been given also to other locations for future units in 
Guilford County or some area near the large and growing cities of Greensboro, 
High Point and Winston-Salem, in the Gaston-Cleveland County area and in 
Orange or Durham County. The Board approved the committee's recommendation 
by the following motion: "That we approve item #3 which designates the Rowan 
County unit as the unit to consider following Albemarle, subject to further study 
and report of the Long Range Planning Committee." 

6. THE HICKORY UNIT — Isaac F. Kuhn, Superintendent. 

a. THE HOME FAMILY — through the grace of God, care was extended to 
68 people during 1965. This consisted of 8,512 days of ambulatory care and 1 1,- 
067 days of infirmary care. There were 1 1 deaths and one withdrawal during the 
year. Fourteen individuals were received into the Home as new members. As of 
January 1, 1966, 56 residents were in the Hickory Unit. There are approximately 
75 applicants waiting for admission. Of these, 40 have been approved by the 
Administrations Committee for immediate admittance. The remainder are non- 
members of the North Carolina Synod who hope to enter at a later date. 

b. STAFF — It has been necessary to make many changes in the staff during 
1965. With the beginning of 1966 the situation has stabilized and the staff is 
working as a team to serve the residents. The following personnel is now serving: 
Miss Martha Ann Trexler, R.N., B.S., Nursing supervisor; Miss Ronda Rudisill, 
Mrs. Margie P. Teague, Mrs. Fern Penley, and Mrs. Betty Shell, Licensed Prac- 
tical Nurses; Miss Helen Townsend, bookkeeper and secretary; Mrs. Thelma 
Smith, dietician; Mrs. Frieda Cline, Director of activities and Mr. Harold Smith, 
custodian. Working under these are 24 aids, cooks, and orderlies. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMER ICA L45 

c. IMPROVEMENTS AND ADDITIONS — Many improvements have been 
made at the Hickory Unit during the year, 1965. Among these are improve- 
ment of the sewer system which makes it acceptable until the Hickory Unit is 
incorporated into the city of Hickory and connection with the city sewer system is 
possible, re-seeding parts of the lawn where most needed, a new chute for he 
storage of soiled linen and installation of an awning above the kitchen windows. 

During the year, a new station wagon, a new color television and a deep 
freezer were received as generous gifts from friends of the Home. 

d. PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES — Each Sunday morning worship services 
are conducted by the Rev. J. Arthur Linn, chaplain. Mrs. Linn teaches Sunday 
School and is pianist for the Service. Daily devotions are conducted at noon by 
members of the staff and evening devotions, once each week, are led by invited 
guests. Other activities are crafts directed by Lutheran Church Women from 
churches of the area, games, puzzles, television, reading, etc. Groups in 
churches throughout the Synod have adopted all the residents and remember 
them on their birthdays and on other special occasions. This special personal 
attention and expression of Christian concern means much to each resident. 

e. COST OF CARE — Analysis of the operating cost of the Hickory Unit 
for the year 1965 indicates an increase in the cost of care for residents. The 
cost for ambulant residents advanced from $160 per month in 1964 to $175 
per month in 1965 and, for infirmary care, the cost increased from $242 in 
1964 to $270 per month in 1965. The main factors responsible for the in- 
crease in cost were necessary additions to the Hickory Unit budget which includ- 
ed the Superintendent's salary and expenses, increase in staff wages and added 
insurance coverage. (Neither debt retirement and interest, the Executive Di- 
rector's salary and expenses nor cost of promotional materials are included in the 
Hickory Unit budget.) The increase was effective March 1, 1966 and efforts 
are being made to adjust the contracts of those already in the Home and those 
to be admitted to conform to the increased cost. Those financially unable to 
pay the full cost of care will be provided care either for the amount they can pay 
or whctever can be arranged for them. The deficit caused by inability 
of residents to pay full cost of care will be met by funds from the churches 
through the apportionment to Synod. 

7. THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND AUDITOR'S CERTIFICATES are 
submitted herewith as part of the report. 

RECOMMENDATION: The Board recommends that the auditor's certificates 
be adopted.

Hickory, North Carolina 

Gentlemen: 

We have examined the statements of financial position, revenues and 
expenditures, and cash receipts ond disbursements of the Treasurer's Fund of 
the North Carolina Lutheran Homes, Inc. for the year ended December 31, 1965. 
Our examination was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing 
standards, and accordingly included such tests of the accounting records and such 
other auditing procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. The 
examination of receipts and donations, which because of their nature are not 
susceptible of complete check, was confined principally to tests of the deposits 
of recorded receipts in the authorized depositories. 

In our opinion, except as noted above, the accompanying statements present 
fairly the financial position of the Treasurer's Fund of the North Carolina Lu- 
theran Homes, Inc. at December 31, 1965, and the revenues collected and ex-

Report on Examination 

Year Ended December 31, 1965 

Officers and Directors 

North Carolina Lutheran Homes, Inc. 

Hickory, North Carolina 

Gentlemen: 

We have examined the statements of financial position, revenues and ex- 
penditures and cash receipts and disbursements of the Hickory Unit of the 
North Carolina Lutheran Homes, Inc. for the year ended December 31, 1965. 
Our examination was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing 
standards, and accordingly included such tests of the accounting records and 
such other auditing procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. 
The examination of receipts and donations, which because of their nature ere 
not susceptible of complete check, was confined principally to tests of the de- 
posits of recorded receipts in the authorized depositories. 

In our opinion, except as noted above, the accompanying statements present 
fairly the financial position of the Hickory Unit of the North Carolina Lutheran 
Homes, Inc. at December 31, 1965, and the revenues collected and expenses 
disbursed by it during the year then ended, in conformity with procedures gen- 
erally followed by similar organizations. 

Respectfully submitted,

RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE SOCIAL MINISTRY COMMITTEE 

1. The Committee commends the Board of Trustees of the Home, the Director, 
the Superintendent and all the members of the staff of the Hickory Unit on 
their splendid service in the Ministry to the Aged, and recommends that the 
President of the Board, the Reverend John A. Pless, the executive director, 
Dr. J. L. Norris, and Superintendent of the Hickory Unit, Mr. Isaac Kuhn be 
given a total of ten minutes to bring greetings from the Home. 

2. The Committee recommends that North Carolina Lutherans respond to the 
effort to liquidate the indebtedness of approximately $20,000 remaining on 
the Hickory Unit. 

3. The Committee commends the people of the Albemarle Area for the solendid 
resoonse of financial support for the Albemarle Unit and recommends that 
Lutherans throughout the Synod be encouraged to make special gifts toward 
this second project of our Synod to provide a greater ministry to the aged. 

4. The Committee recommends that recommendation in item 7 of the Board's 
Report be adopted. 

B — Report of Lotvman Home 
for the Aged and Helpless 

"Not a Year of Spectacular Strides, But . . . ! " 
Oftentimes an addition to the family necessitates tremendous adjustments 
by the other members. Such was truly the case during 1965, the first full year 
of operation of the fifty-six bed Wynne C. Boliek Infirmary. When an in- 
stitution expands by one-third its size, no few changes are required in every 
phase of its program. This was learned the hard way in some instances, but 
it is a pleasure to report that this hurdle has been mounted in fine style. 

A. Staff. After considerable turnover among our employees, we are 
happy to report that we are now operating fully manned with sufficient Nurses' 
Aids and Male Orderlies: a critical shortage of these important helpers was ex- 
perienced over the summer and early fall. Throughout all of 1965 we were unable 
to secure a sufficient complement (six) of Registered Nurses in order to qualify 
for a Class I License by the S. C. State Board of Health. Prospects are good for 
this achievement during 1966, as the time approaches for the annual inspection. 
It has been necessary to add additional personnel in all departments, bringing our 
total number of employees to 93. 

B. Budget. Despite extensive study devoted to an estimate of personnel 
and money needed for such a unit one invariably sticks to a minimum. Resulting- 
ly, the Home's budget for 1965 turned out to be the expected cost of operation 
for 1966. Registered Nurses, for instance, had to be offered the same pay 
scale as the hospitals in the Columbia area. The change to an eight-hour shift- 
in the Infirmary and a twelve-hour shift in the custodial care building called for 
considerably more employees than had been anticipated. Even with such 



152 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



escalation, we feel that the year was completed on a sound financial basis, and 
we owe a great debt of gratitude to all the congregations of the supporting synods 
who have supported this ministry to our aging and infirm in such a wonderful 
manner. We would like to mention also the generous friends of the Home who 
share by sending their gifts directly toward the program of this institution. 

A TRUE SUPPORTING ARM 

The Lutheran Church in America, through its Board of Social Ministry, 
assisted the Home with a grant-in-aid of $4,000. This significant help was 
offered for the transitional period following the merger. Lowman Home was 
affected by the withdrawal of the Florida Synod as one of its constituent sup- 
porting groups. The Board of Social Ministry has graciously decided to grant 
as a terminal gift this same amount in 1966. For this generous undergirding, we 
are genuinely appreciative to the Mother Church. 

WOMEN AND MERCY! 

Contact' Women. Again we called for the assistance of these ladies, one 
in each congregation who may keep the congregations informed about the opera- 
tion of the Home. These keenly interested persons were written last spring 
and informed that our project for 1965 was the refurnishing of our dining 
areas, four areas in all. A total cost of $5,000 was estimated. When the gifts 
were totalled, coming from LCW groups, congregations, and individuals, we re- 
ceived more than the needed amount — $5,436.02. A completely new color 
scheme offers most pleasant surroundings in which to dine. 

Volunteers. The Volunteer Service Program has involved a total of 804 
ladies from the Newberry, Western and Central Districts of the South Carolina 
Synod. During 1965, groups of ladies from six congregations came regularly 
each month to offer their services to the program of the Home. There were 
110 ladies who gave a total of 273 days of eight hours in sewing, mending, 
recreation, letter writing, and light nursing in the infirmary. Mrs. John B. /Moose 
continues to co-ordinate the significant program of assistance to the Home. 

The South Carolina Unit of the Luther League of America conducted a 
Work Camp at the Home last spring, during which seventeen teenagers gave 
three days toward the repainting of the Recreation Room and assisting with the 
work in the Infirmary and providing a very pleasant break into an often monoton- 
ous routine for a number of our folks. Presently, a Program of Involvement 
has brought 52 Leaguers who gave 102 hours of service to the Home and its 
guests. 

To all of these who give of themselves and their gifts in such an unselfish 
manner, we say our heartfelt thanks and appreciation. 

LONG RANGE PLANNING COMMITTEE 

A special committee of the Board and other key persons are giving study to 
the Home's present program and facilities. A detailed consideration and survey 
of the Home's structure and operational policies is being made this spring by 
the LCA Board of Social Ministry. A priority rating will be given to needed 
improvements in the physical plant, and the Home's future program will receive 
considerable perusal. According to the present schedule, a full report by this 
committee will be ready for the Board meeting in June. 

SYNODICAL REALLIGNMENT 

In line with actions taken by their conventions during 1965, and by com- 
mon consent of the Southern Synodical Presidents, December 31, 1967 is the date 
set for the final withdrawal of both the North Carolina and Virginia Synods as 
constituent supporting groups of Lowman Home. 

The precedure for withdrawal, approved by synodical conventions during 
1962, provides for securing an agreement with remaining synods to assume the 
duties and responsibilities, securing approval by a "competent court in South 
Carolina", and the conveying of all rights, title and interest in Lowman Home, 
and ceasing to elect trustees. 

The formula of withdrawal provides also that the ownership shall be retained 
by the remaining supporting synods; that the withdrawing synod shall continue for 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 153 



two years to provide a support equivalent to the average of its last three years 
of participation, during which time the Home will be permitted its customary 
mail contacts but that there be no additional promotion by either the Home or the 
synod, and that such changed relationship does not at anytime deny the privilege 
of making contributions or bequests to the institution. It also specifies that the 
withdrawing synod shall make satisfactory arrangements for guests without life 
tenure or arrange for a suitable purchase-of-care plan, and that members of 
withdrawing synods shall have priority in the filling of vcccncies not filled by 
the supporting synods. It is understood also that "a withdrawing synod shall 
waive all claims or rights to ownership and equity in the Home" except in the 
event of total dissolution of the Home, then the withdrawing synod shall be en- 
titled to its proportionate share of equity less five per cent for each year that 
elcpses after it ceases to support the Home. (Paraphrased and quoted from S. C. 
Synod Minutes, 1962, pages 105 and 106.) 

While it is with sincere regret that this official relationship will be concluded 
at the end of next year, we extend to the Synods of North Carolina and Virginia 
all good wishes as they develop further and expand their own respective pro- 
grams in their care for the aging and infirm. We would assure you of our 
heartfelt gratitude for your assistance over the years, and we offer our pledge of 
continued cooperation when the need arises for care offered by Lov/man Home. 
On the other hand, ours is an overwhelming confidence in the determination of 
the South Carolina and Southeastern Synods to continue the program of this 
mother Lutheran institution providing care and concern for the aging and infirm 
in the Southland. 

WHAT A FAMILY! 

Every year we find ourselves making minor changes which provide room 
space for several more guests. Resultingly, the Home can provide for a max- 
imum of 166 persons. We ere happy to report that every bed is filled, and it is 
with sincere regret that female applicants are now being quoted a waiting period 
of approximately one year. This is especially true of ambulatory ladies, while 
we are in position to offer better encouragement to ladies needing extended 
nursing care. A short waiting period must also be expected by male applicants. 
Among the members of our varied family, there are 30 from North Carolina, 102 
from South Carolina, 19 from the Southeastern, 12 Virginians, end one each 
from Florida end Illinois. In addition to these regular guests, there are five who 
live in their own or specially arranged housing; these are self sustaining. When 
one remembers that these guests are not only from varying backgrounds, but 
that they differ in many other aspects of life, he will find here much that will 
keep life from becoming monotonous and even more that is heart-rending and 
rewarding as he expends himself in this ministry of mercy. 

"ABOUNDING WITH THANKSGIVING" 

We who have been privileged to guide and direct the program of Lowman 
Home owe a great debt of gratitude to ever so many people throughout the 
supporting synods. Those who share toward the benevolent quotas of their con- 
gregations undergird the merciful work of this institution, as do those who mail 
their gifts directly to the Home, and others who provide for the Home's program 
in their wills. Last May proved to be a wonderful month for the receipt of 
bequests made available through the gracious thoughtfulness of those who 
planned a gift through their wills: 

May 19 — From the Trust Estate of Mrs. Jennie B. 

Morgan, Salisbury, North Carolina $ 6,582.32

Then, too, there are those twenty-five congregations who joined the "Second- 
mile Benevolence Club" — -those who shared year-end balances toward the on- 
going of this ministry. Without all of you our hands would be tied. You help us 
extend our hands in the care of our guests. May God bless us as together we 
endeavor to render this service in His Name.

SUMMARY OF FINANCIAL POSITION 

White Rock, S. C. 

Year Ended December 31, 1965 

INDEPENDENT CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANT'S REPORT 

TO— 

The Board of Trustees 

Lowman home for the Aged and Helpless 

White Rock, South Carolina 

In our opinion the accompanying balance sheet and the related statement of 
fund balances and changes present fairly the financial position of the Lowman 
Home for the Aged and Helpless as of December 31, 1965 and the results of its 
operations and fund balance changes for the year then ended. The statement 
of fund balances and changes has been adjusted to exclude all receipts and 
disbursements for the period January 1-21, 1965 which were included in the 
prior year's statement. As of December 31, 1965 the Home elected to present 
its financial statements on the accrual basis thereby eliminating the necessity 
of holding open the records after a year end to collect accounts receivable and 
refit for accounts payable. These statements are presented in accordance with 
generally accepted institutional accounting principles applied on a basis con- 
sistent (except for the foregoing change - which we approve) with that of 
the preceding year. 

Our examination was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing 
standards and accordingly included such tests of the accounting records and such 
other auditing procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances except 
that the scope of verification of contributions only included confirmation with 
the Synod Treasurers - other contributions were accepted and are reflected in 
the accompanying statements as recorded.

LOWMAN HOME FOR THE AGED 

Year Ended December 31, 1965 



Prior to 1955, contributions and settlements for life-time care were taken 
up as income when received with no liability for future care being recorded; 
also no income was recognized when contracts were made for life-time care 
of a member in consideration of bequests to be received at the member's 
death. In accord with the action of the Board, effective after December 31, 
1954, such, advance lump-sum settlements received for life-time care are 
set aside in trust funds to be taken into income on the basis of the member's 
life expectancy. 

In accord with generally accepted institutional accounting practice, no pro- 
vision has been made for depreciation. Replacements and maintenance costs 
are being charged to expense and only rv "'jor improvements and additions 
are being capitalized in the plant fund. Additions made from the Home's 
current funds are expensed in the year acquired. 

Because of inadequate early plant records, the carrying value of all plant 
assets was set at the appraised value as of December 31, 1954 as determined 
by a committee appointed by the Board. Subsequent additions have been at

C — The Lutheran Children's Home of the South 

SALEM, VIRGINIA 
Fiscal Year January 1, 1965 — December 31, 1965 

This report is being written at a crucial time in the Home's history. Just a 
week from this writing the Home's Planning and Development Committee is to 
meet with the Southern Presidents, the Synodical Social Ministry Committee Chair- 
men, and a consultant from the Board of Social Ministry, L.C.A. This meeting 
was requested by our Board of Trustees for the purpose of making an evaluation 
of the Home in light of developments to date, to offer recommendations concern- 
ing the operation and organization of the Home, and to assist in preparing a fi- 
nancial projection for the next ten years. Synodical representatives were invited 
to attend because the Home's planning is contingent upon synodical planning 



158 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

with regard to social missions developments and especially upon synodical financ- 
ing. 

The Home's Board and staff have followed very closely, through 1965, its 
Planning and Development Report, based on a study made in 1960 by Mr. A. M. 
Broten under the auspices of the Group Child Care Project of the University of 
North Carolina, and with the cooperation of our Lutheran pastors throughout the 
southeast. This progress has been reported to you annually: renovation of cot- 
tages and other facilities, improvement of food service, upgrading of cottage staff 
(staffing cottages primarily with young couples), increased use of professional serv- 
ices, both on and off campus (social workers, psychologists, guidance centers, 
etc.), and increased use of foster homes. The long planned for 'Recreation and 
Manual Arts' or 'Activities Building', as we now call it, is under construction and 
is scheduled for completion about September of this year. We hope that some of 
you will be present to celebrate the dedication and opening of this building. 

All such improvements in quality of care mean increased cost (in four years 
the budget has increased 70%), and the Home has now passed the point where 
expenses exceed income. In 1965 the Home was forced to use $7,500 of reserve 
funds for current operations (funds intended for capital improvement and in- 
vestments). In 1966, after curtailing the proposed budget by $10,000, we face 
a deficit of $25,000 to $40,000. The four supporting synods (Florida excluded) 
have pledged $120,000 for 1967, which in effect is a $20,000 increase since we 
will no longer have the Florida program in our budget, and we are deeply grateful 
for this support. However, this still leaves us with a deficit in 1967 of approxi- 
mately $15,000. 

It is evident that new developments in our program must cease until new 
sources of income are found. This means that the hoped-for extension of case- 
work services to key synodical areas must be shelved or eliminated so far as the 
Home's assuming responsibility for them goes. Should the synods themselves 
assume the initiative for instituing social missions services? If so, when and how 
should this be done? What should be the relationship to the Home during the 
growth years? What alternatives are there? These are some of the questions 
that must be considered at next week's meeting and for the next few years. 
The thoughts, prayers, and support of pastors and lay leaders will be needed 
throughout this tedious, difficult and vital process. 

We are pleased to report that our expenditures in 1965 were well within the 
budget, and that we have no indebtedness. We extend heartfelt thanks to the 
synod, its congregations, and organizations, especially to the Lutheran Church 
Women, whose gifts have meant so much to us. 

During 1965 we cared for 84 children for a total of 24,108 child care days. 
Following is a breakdown on the children's home synod.

REPORT ON EXAMINATION OF 

ACCOUNTS AND RECORDS 

FOR THE YEAR ENDED 

DECEMBER 31, 1965 

Executive Committee. 

The Lutheran Children's Home of the South 

Salem, Virginia 

We have examined the accounts and records of the Lutheran Children's 
Home of the South and prepared the statement of financial condition at De- 
cember 31, 1965 and a condensed statement of income expenses of the General 
Fund only for the year then ended. Our examination was made in accordance 
with generally accepted auditing standards, and included such tests and other 
auditing procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances, except that 
outside confirmation of contributions and board of childen was not attempted. 

In our opinion, subject to the above exception regarding contributions and 
board of children, the accompanying statement of financial condition at De- 
cember 31, 1965 and the condensed statement of income and expenses of the 
General Fund only present fairly the financial position of the various funds at 
December 31, 1965 and the operation of the General Fund for the year then 
ended, in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles applied on 
a basis consistent with that of the preceding year. Exhibit B does not include the 
operation of any of the various funds other than the General Fund.

Florida Synod 

Rev. George R. Whittecar, D.D. 
President, North Carolina Synod 
P. O. Box 240 
Salisbury, North Carolina 

Dear Dr. Whittecar: 

At the recent meeting of the Florida Synod Convention the following resolu- 
tion with regard to our participation in support of the Lutheran Children's Home 
of the South was adopted: 

"Whereas the Lutheran Children's Home is now operating a child care service 
in Florida, and 

"Whereas supervision of this service presents problems due to distance in- 
volved, and 

"Whereas the finances involved are approaching equalization as per figures 
below:

"Whereas the Florida Synod would be in a better position to enter into talks 
with other Lutheran bodies in Florida with regards to an inter-Lutheran welfare 
program, 



LUTHERAN CH U RCH IN AMERICA L6J 

"Therefore, BE IT RESOLVED that the Florida Synod petition the synods 
of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Southeastern to consider the 
granting of permission to the Florida Synod to withdraw from support of the 
Lutheran Children's Home of the South, effective December 31, 1966, and that 
the requirement to continue support of the said Home for two years following 
1966 be waived." 

This communication will constitute our official petition to your Synod for 
consideration of the granting of permission for the Florida Synod to withdraw 
support from the Children's Home of the South efective December 31st, 1966, 
with the waiver of the two-year support clause in our original joint ownership 
agreement. 

We feel this withdrawal and this request for waiver to be appropriate since 
at the present time, as the resolution indicates, the budget and actual cash 
receipts from the Florida Synod to the Home approximates the monies being 
expended on the territory of the Synod. We also hope that this severance in 
relationship without any contingent strings would aid us in our negotiations for 
an inter-Lutheran Welfare Program in Florida. 

We earnestly solocit your favorable recommendation to this request and the 
appropriate action at your next Synod meeting. Thank you. 

JOSEPH HUNTLEY, Secretary 
Florida Synod

D-a. Synod's formal relationship with Sipe's Orchard Home discontinued with 
this convention. 

Following is the action taken at the 1964 convention of synod: (1964 Minu- 
tes P. 153-154) 

Be it resolved, that 

a. The North Carolina Synod notify the Board of Directors of the Sipe's 
Orchard Home that it will not replace the representatives that it elected 
in its convention April 29 - May 2, 1963, namely Mr. Henry Herman and 
the Rev. D. F. Swicegood, when their terms of office expire in 1966, thus 
discontinuing its formal relationship with the management of the Home. 

b. That the North Carolina Synod assure the Board of Directors of the Sipe's 
Orchard Home that this action does not express any loss of interest or 

dissatisfaction with the program or management of the Home, but is done 
only to conform to the policy of the Lutheran Church in America . . . , 
and further that, should the Board of Directors of the Home take steps to amend 
its Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws so that they would conform to the 
"representative principle" for interchurch relationship and to the constitutional 
requirements of the North Carolina Synod for church-owned or church-recognized 
agencies, the North Carolina Synod will be pleased to reassume a place in the 
management of the Home. 

RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE SOCIAL MINISTRY COMMITTEE 

H„ The Committee commends the staff of the Sipe's Orchard Home for its fine 
work and recommends that the Superintendent, Mr. John G. Odom, be given 
five minutes to bring greetings. 

.&. The Committee recommends that the printed report be received as informa-

The report was submitted by the committee's chairman, the Rev. Harry H. 
Robinson. 

Chairman Robinson expressed appreciation to committee members with a 
special tribute to staff member Ernest Misenheimer and Mrs. Ernest Ridenhour, 
committee secretary, and defined social ministry as involvement of the church in 
the world as it serves persons with special needs and participates responsibly in 
the social order. He gave special recognition to the institutional chaplaincy serv- 
ice in the Durham-Raleigh-Chapel-Hill area rendered by Chaplain J. White 
Iddings. 

Chaplain Iddings was given the privilege of the convention floor to speak of 
his initial work. He said that while the transition from the parish ministry to an 
institutional ministry is not easy, he saw in every sick room a pulpit to minister 
to the needs of people. He cited cases and statistics testifying to the wisdom of 
beginning this type of ministry in the synod. He said that patients are not afraid 
of dying, but only afraid of dying alone. He commended Pastor Henry Shroeder, 
the advisory committee, and pastors in the Durham area for their gracious assist- 
ance. He urged pastors to submit names of patients entering the institutions in the 
Durham area. He informed the convention of the opportunity for clinical train- 
ing now available to pastors and seminary students at the Duke Medical School 
and the North Carolina Memorial Chaplaincy School. 

Chairman Robinson again took the floor, and after highlighting the plans and 
programs for the future, as set forth in the committee's report, he moved the 
adoption of the committee's recommendation that parish pastors and congrega- 
tional social ministry chairmen attend the Stewardship-Evangelism - Social Min- 
istry School at Lenoir Rhyne College, July 29-30, 1966. 

The recommendation was adopted. 

The second part of the committee's report was the presesntation of reports 
from synod's social ministry institutions through their respective representatives 
and were heard in the following order: 

A. NORTH CAROLINA LUTHERAN HOMES 

The Rev. John A. Pless, chairman of the Board of Trustees of North Caro- 
lina Lutheran Homes, was recognized. Chairman Pless expressed in behalf of the 
board appreciation to the synod for its support, and then presented to the 
convention the Rev. Dr. J. L. Norris, Executive Director of the Homes. 

Dr. Norris cited cases of appreciation for the work being done by N. C. 
Lutheran Homes as evidenced by continued support and an increasing number of 
supporters. In view of forthcoming gifts, he predicted an early retirement of the 
Home's remaining indebtedness of $20,000. 

Dr. Norris reported that contributions toward the Albemarle Unit were en- 
couraging, and spoke of the needs of this unit to catch up with the growing needs 
of the synod in its ministry to the aging. 

Isaac Kuhn, superintendent of the Hickory Unit, was recognized and brought 
greetings from the residents of the Home, and spoke in a spirit of optimism and 
hope of a growing ministry in the days ahead. 

Chairman Robinson then moved the adoption of the committee's recommenda- 
tions in connection with the North Carolina Lutheran Homes with an amendment 
to Recommendation 1, "The committee recommends that the synod in conven- 
tion express its appreciation to" . . . instead of "the committee commends". . 



164 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SY NOD 

Recommendation 1 was adopted as amended. 
Recommendation 2 was adopted. 
Recommendation 3 was adopted. 

In connection with this recommendation, Dr. F. L. Conrad made a brief 
historical statement of the original cost in amount of $367,000, and urged an 
early liquidation of the remaining indebtedness. He cited this case as an example 
of what N. C. Lutherans can do when they are so challenged. 

Recommendation 4 was automatically referred to the Committee on Audit. 

B. LOWMAN HOME 

The superintendent of the Lowman Home, the Rev. J. Kenneth Webb, was 
recognized for a report from the Home. Superintendent Webb described the min- 
istry of the Home in terms of romance. He spoke of the rapid changes being 
made in this area of service, and of the evaluation study being made by the 
board of trustees. He paid tribute to the contact women as playing a significant 
role in the life of the Home. He praised the N. C. Synod for its support and bade 
Godspeed upon its own program for the aging. 

Clarification was made of the effective date of synod's withdrawal from the 
Lowman Home as it pertains to financial support. According to the rules of 
procedure, the synod's support of Lowman Home ends December 31, 1967, while 
the termination date for the synod's trustees is 1966. 

On motion of Chairman Harry Robinson of the Committee on Social Ministry, 
Recommendation 1 was adopted. 
Recommendation 2 was referred to the Committee on Audit. 

C. LUTHERAN CHILDREN'S HOME OF THE SOUTH 

Mr. Roy Hendrickson, assistant superintendent, spoke in behalf of the Lu- 
theran Children's Home. He described the plight of today's emotionally disturbed 
children due to problem parents and broken homes, and said that the ministry 
of the Home is geared toward the salvation of children who would otherwise 
be lost both to God and society. Through the ministry of the Home they become 
productive citizens of society. Referring to the activities building now under con- 
struction as a must, he encouraged continued interest, prayers, and gifts, as we 
are "building on faith". 

Chairman Robinson moved the adoption of the recommendations of the Social 
Ministry Committee relating to this institution. 

Recommendation 1 was adopted. 
Recommendation 2 was adopted. 
Recommendation 3 was adopted. 

Recommendation 4 was deleted as not being necessary as the financial sec- 
tion had already been referred to the Committee on Audit. 

D. SIPES' ORCHARD HOME 

Mr. John Odom, superintendent of Sipes' Orchard Home, was recognized 
end brought greetings from the Home. Summarizing the activities of the Home 
including the rising costs of operation, Mr. Odom thanked the N. C. Synod for its 
contributions through the synod's elected directors during the 21 years of the 
Home's existence. He made note of the termination of synod's formal relation- 
ship with this institution according to prior action of the convention. 

President Whittecar assured Superintendent Odom of the synod's con- 
tinued interest in the Home even though the formal relationship had come to an 
end. 

On motion of Chairman Robinson, Recommendations 1 and 2 were adopted. 

The Committee on Social Ministry through its chairman requested that the 
Rev. Floyd Trexler be granted the privilege to speak sometime later in con- 
nection with his work with military personnel at Jacksonville. The request was 
referred to the Committee on Reference and Counsel. 

President Whittecar thanked the Committee on Social Ministry for its 
thorough report and the representatives of the institutions for their informing 
reports.

The Committee on Auxiliaries provides the link between the synod and the 
synodical units of the three auxiliaries of the Lutheran Church in America. We 
are most appreciative of the splendid spirit of cooperation that we continually 
have demonstrated by the officers and members of the auxiliaries of the church. 
Your committee has made itself available to the Presidents of the Auxiliaries by 
suggesting that committee members serve as representatives of the synod as 
follows: 

LUTHERAN CHURCH WOMEN: The Rev. C. Lee Shipton and Mrs. 
Aubrey Mauney 

LUTHERAN CHURCH MEN: The Rev. Robert N. Peery and Mr. 
Paul Ritchie 

LUTHER LEAGUE: The Rev. Terry Agner and Miss Ruth Whittecar 

The members of the committee have accepted invitations that have come to 
them to meet with the Executive Committee of the auxiliaries and to attend their 
synodical conventions. They have endeavored to provide counsel and assistance 
on behalf of the synod wherever possible. 

We note that there are some congregations of the synod that do not have 
active working units of our auxiliaries. The committee would urge every congre- 
gation in the synod to organize congregational units, where they are lacking, and 
to vigorously promote a full program of fellowship and service as the auxiliaries 
provide. Surely every congregation of the synod should have a local unit of each, 
auxiliary of the church. 

It should be noted that the North Carolina Luther League maintains a re- 
lationship with the Youth Committee of the synod. The Youth Committee serves 
as the official advisory group to the synodical Luther League. This committee 
provides another contact with the Luther League, primarily to be the channel 
through which the Luther League reports to the convention of synod. 

The presidents of the synodical auxiliaries have presented the following 
reports. We present them, herewith, to the synod as information. 

REPORT OF LUTHERAN CHURCH WOMEN 

The year of 1965 has been one of study and activities for Lutheran Church 
Women of the North Carolina Synod. Our objectives for the year have been 
(a) to interpret the purpose of Lutheran Church Women, (b) interpret the struc- 
ture of the organization in all of its relationships and (c) to develop spiritually 
through study and fellowship, in the Church and in the community. 

We have attempted to meet these objectives through Convention and Dis- 
trict Assembly Meetings, "Help-Shops", and Study Groups. The 1965 Conven- 
tion Theme "Fill Me With Life Anew" indicates that our membership realized the 
need for re-dedicated Christian women if we are to witness effectively for Jesus 
Christ, not only as we meet together, but also as we live in the home and com- 
munity, and in all relationships of life. 

Thirteen delegates from the N. C. Unit attended the Triennial Conven- 
tion in August, in Cleveland, Ohio. This Convention was reported to more than 
15 hundred women at the six District Fall Fellowship meetings. 



166 PROCE EDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

As a result of Auxiliary Workshops in Cleveland, Ohio, in February and in 
Richmond, Virginia, in April, members of the Unit's Executive Board were train- 
ed and encouraged to participate in training others. On September 10th and 
11th the Executive Board conducted a Retreat-Workshop in Linville, N. C, and 
since that time a portion of the day on which the Board meets is used for study 
and discussion of leadership training and planning to meet the needs of our 
membership. 

I am thankful to be able to report that our offerings have been enough that 
we have more than paid our budget to Lutheran Church Women. N. C. is one 
of only six units that has gone beyond her anticipated goal in giving. This per- 
haps is at least one measure of a spiritual growth in our membership. We thank- 
fully report also a great increase in Bible Studies in our groups on the congre- 
gational level. 

We have within our Unit 191 congregational organizations. 188 of these 
are full fledged members of the Auxilicry — it is simply a matter of not submitting 

a Constitution for approval to the Office in Philadelphia. 

Again may I express for Lutheran Church Women of the North Carolina 
Synod our great pride in being a part of the Synod, for the very fine relation- 
ship we experience and enjoy from the President of Synod, from the Committee 
on Auxiliaries and from the Synod's representatives in the person of The Rev. 
C. Lee Shipton. He attends all Executive Board Meetings and Conventions. 
He is always cooperative and helpful. We hope for your continued support and 
prayers as we continue to work in the Master's Kingdom.

REPORT OF LUTHERAN CHURCH MEN 
Officers 

The following officers of the North Carolina LCM were elected at the 
state convention in Rocky Mount on November 3, 1965, for the year 1966. 
President: W. A. Kluttz, Vice President: Harry B. Fesperrnan, Secretary: Ray A. 
Cline, Treasurer: Elmer Barnhardt. J.J. Lentz and The Rev. Paul L. Morgan were 
elected to three year terms on the Executive Committee. 

Program 

A workshop was held for the District Presidents for 1966 on December 5, 
1965. One was held on January 9, 1966 at the district level, in each district 
for all the officers of each congregational unit, presided over by a member of 
the Executive Committee. 

At these workshop meetings we pledged: That there would be increased 
communication between the state, district and local units, that there would be 
a member of the Executive Committee at each quarterly district meeting, and 
that the President of N. C. LCM would attend one meeting in each district during 
the year, if possible. 

At these workshop meetings a four page outline of the program for the 
year was furnished and the members of the Executive Committee, disrict presi- 
dents and the president of each congregational unit, which included a recom- 
mended list of committees at each level. 

APPORTIONMENT & CONTRIBUTOR PROGRAM 

The apportionment to the LCM of the Lutheran Church in America has 
declined in recent years. Of the 141 congregational LCM units in North Caro- 
lina, 71% paid in 1963, 75% paid in 1964, and in 1965 only 60% paid. We 
recommend that there be a committee appointed in each congregational unit for 
the purpose of soliciting contributor members. 

Both of these programs are for the National LCM budget. 

The State LCM obtains its revenue from the offerings at the district meet- 
ings, less expenses, plus $1.00 from $5.00 contributor membership returned to 
the State LCM. 

LOAN & GIFT FUND 

An elaborate Loan & Gift Fund program has been prepared and organized 
by our new Director, Leonard Moretz. If you were at the Convention at Rocky 
Mount on November 3, 1965, you had an opportunity to see it. He has sufficient 
slides prepared, so that each of the six districts will have two sets. This will 
afford an opportunity for a showing to each congregation LCM unit. 

Contributions have not met the needs for loans to our new mission churches 
in recent years, but with the new program and the organization our new Director 
has set up, we look forward to a year of renewed interest. 

EXTENSION PROGRAM 

The extension program is in charge of our Vice President, Brother Harry 
B. Fesperrnan, 19 Forsyth St., Thomasville. There are some 57 congregations out 
of 200 in the North Carolina Synod that are without an LCM unit. We are em- 
barking on a program, which, we are hopeful, will improve this condition. 

IN GENERAL 

The district presidents were reminded at the workshop held for them, that 
although they had heard and read such statements as "The LCM is sick", "The 
LCM is dying" and "The LCM is dead", that they were not elected to preside 
over the last rites, but to give an injection that will insure continued growth. 



168 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



We have been handed a burning torch and we will not let it go out. 

It was announced to the Press, Radio and Television in New York on Jan- 
uary 31, 1966, that the Convention of the Lutheran Church in America at Kansas 
City, June 21-29, will be asked to drop the LCM Auxiliary as a National Unit 
with the suggestion "That, at the option of each synod, synodical organization 
for men may be constituted.

Lutheran Church Men of North Carolina 

REPORT OF THE NORTH CAROLINA LUTHER LEAGUE UNIT 

The North Carolina Luther League Unit has been engulfed this year in trying 
to minister more effectively to the youth of the synod. The Executive Committee 
of the Unit has endeavored to maintain closer contact with the congregational 
leagues and individuals and has projected much throughout the purpose of youth 
ministry. 

The Fourth Annual Convention of the NCLLU convened on the Lenoir 
Rhyne College campus on June 23, 1965. The Reverend Lee H. Wesley, of the 
Board of Parish Education of the LCA, delivered the keynote addresses on the 
thfime. "Follow Me". In addition to the 225 convention deleaates, 77 visitors 
and 49 staff and adults were present, giving a total of 351 conventioneers. The 
following were elected to serve the Unit as officers: David Misenheimer, Presi- 
dent; Pam Volkert, Secretary; Bob Shoffner, Treasurer; A.Aembers-at-large, Faith 
Anderson, Jane Arndt, Beth Kirk, Kay Krimminger, John Misenheimer, Ron 
Moser, Clyde Overcash, John Rowling, David Shulenburger, Elizabeth Whittecar, 
Jerry Cobb, and Tommy Ford. The Convention elected the Rev. Claude Deal, 
Jr. as the post Luther League age member-at-large. A budget of $9,400.00 was 
adopted for 1966. 

Financially, the NCLLU has terrific support from its near 160 registered 
leagues. Having met in full its pledae to the LL-LCA each year, the Unit 
over-subscribed the 1964 pledge of $6,250.00 by $500.00 and the 1965 pledge 
of the same amount was overpaid by $750.00. Even though the NCLLU is 
smaller than many other units, it leads the LL-LCA in prooortional and over- 
all giving. The Penny Parade, an annual project of the NCLLU, amounted to 
over $2,600.00 for 1965, with some money still coming in. This generous 
response by the North Carolina leaguers will support camping areas and retreat 
centers throughout the state. 

North Carolina was well represented at the Luther League — LCA Conven- 
tion at Miami Beach, Florida, August 21-23, 1965. Robert N. Peery, Jr. was 
again elected President of the LL-LCA. The Rev. Brady Faggart, Jr. was elected 
as Post Luther League age member-at-large. Perry Beaver is currently serving 
as a member-at-large. 

In addition to contributing officers to the LL-LCA, the NCLLU also has 
other leaders who participate in projects of the international organization. Those 
who were LL-LCA Caravaners last summer were: Sylvia Blair of Hickory, 
James Fleming of Greenville, and Michael Frye of Kannapolis. Four of our 
youth took part in the Work Camping program. They were: Mary Yount of 
Hickory, Karen Green of Charlotte, Linda Kay Kcelke of Charlotte, and Marilyn 
Tolen of Asheboro. John Bovd of StatesvHie is participating in a one year 
volunteer program in Hawaii this current year. 

An LL-LCA Work Camp was held at Franklinton Center, Bricks, N. C, Au- 
gust 3-13, 1965. This proved to be a successful operation. The NCLLU also 
sponsored a work camD on the Unit level at the North Carolina Lutheran Homes 
in Hickory, June 13-19, 1965. 

Other summer activities for North Carolina leaguers included three Lead- 
ership schools at Lenoir Rhyne College. A Seminar was conducted on the 
campus June 13-19. Two Basic Schools were held on successive weeks, July 
18-24 and July 25-31, 1965. Each of these schools was well attended and bene- 
ficial. Over 175 youth from our state attended the LCA Youth Conference at 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA [69 

Miami Beach, Florida, August 24-29, 1965. This opportunity for fellowship 
and inspiration was a great experience for those who attended. 

Coming events for the summer for the NCLLU are: 

1. 1966 NCLLU Convention at Lenoir Rhyne College, July 20-23. The theme 
of this year's convention is "He Gives Peace". 

2. League Leadership Schools. 

Basic Schools are July 24-30 and also July 3 1 -August 6 
Seminar (Institute) is always 7-13 

3. 1966 LL-LCA Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, August 21-25, 1966 
The North Carolina Luther League Unit would like to express its sincere 

appreciation to the North Carolina Synod and its pastors, laymen, and Youth 
Committee for the splendid cooperation experienced in every endeavor. We feel 
that these relations and this cooperation is enjoyed by no other state unit to 
the event that it is in North Carolina. We appreciate your continued support and 
pray that God will guide us as we both continue in His work together. 

DAVID L. MISENHEIMER, President 
North Carolina Luther League Unit 

Your committee requests that a representative of each of our Auxiliaries 
be recognized to bring greetings to the Convention. 

THE REV. JOHN D. MAUNEY, JR., 

Chairman 

MISS RUTH WHITTECAR 

MRS. AUBREY MAUNEY 

MR. PAUL RITCHIE 

THE REV. C. LEE SHIPTON 

THE REV. TERRY AGNER 

THE REV. ROBERT N. PEERY 

The committee's chairman, the Rev. John D. Mauney, Jr., was recognized 
and presented the report of the committee. Chairman Mauney expressed ap- 
preciation to committee members and presidents of the three auxiliary units. 
He called particular attention to the Patterson Memorial Fund printed in the 
report, and recognized its strategic role in the Christian education of young 
people. 

In connection with his report and as a vital part of the report, he pre- 
sented respectively the representatives of the three synodical auxiliary units 
as follows: 

LUTHERAN CHURCH WOMEN, N. C. UN3T 

Mrs. Ray Fisher of Winston-Salem, president of the synodical unit of Lu- 
theran Church Women, was recognized and brought greetings in the name of 
that auxiliary. Mrs. Fisher referred to a page of materials in the program packet 
prepared by Mrs. Donald Perryman presenting plans and functions of L.C.W. 
in N. C. in short order. Attention was called to the forthcoming convention of 
the synodical unit and pastors were invited to attend. 

LUTHERAN CHURCH MEN, N. C. UNIT 

Mr. W. A. Kluttz of Greensboro, president of the synodical unit of Lu- 
theran Church M^en, was heard in connection with men's work in North Carolina. 
His greetings were saturated with feelings of optimism regarding the future of 
men's work in N. C, regardless of the status of men's work on a church wide 
level. He cited the progress of the L.C.M. in North Carolina and said that the 
lighted torch of men's work is expected to continue to glow regardless of the 
actions taken at Kansas City on the future of men's work as an auxiliary of 
the church. He substantiated his remarks by referring to actions already taken 
by the LCM Executive Committee to perpetuate the organization in North 



170 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

Carolina. He stated that the present constitution will suffice to bridge the gap 
until a new constitution is adopted in case the auxiliary is dropped as an auxiliary 
of the church. 

Dr. H. E. Isenhour supported President Kluttz in his remarks, and said 
that the men's organization in North Carolina has too glodious a past to cause 
it to cease. 

LUTHER LEAGUE, N. C. UNIT 

David Misenheimer was recognized as the president of the North Carolina 
Unit of the Luther League, and greeted the convention by saying that the youth 
of today are searching for truth, meaning, and relevancy, and appealed for the 
interest, guidance, and example of adult leadership. He accented the new ap- 
proach to youth ministry as the old patterns and programs are not sufficent to 
meet the needs of youth in a changing world. He expressed gratitude to the 
synod, LL executive committee, secretary of Christian education, and youth 
committee for their continued guidance and support. 

President Misenheimer presented to synod President Whittecar a check 
in amount of $2,735.37 realized from the 1965 penny parade designated for 
camp and retreat centers. 

President Whittecar accepted the check with profound gratitude for such 
a tangible witness to the North Carolina youths' interest in and support of the 
camping program of the synod, and replied further that the Camp Committee 
is ready to make good use of it. 

On motion of Chairman Mauney, the report of the Committee on Auxiliaries 
was received as information. 

REFERENCE AND COUNSEL 

Chairman Marion Starr of the Committee on Reference and Counsel pre- 
sented to the convention the Right Reverend George Henry, Bishop of the Western 
Diocese of the Episcopal Church and President of the North Carolina Council of 
Churches. Bishop Henry sounded an appropriate note of greeting by saying that 
the N. C. Council is moving in the ecumenical spirit. The Council, he said, is 
the one agency in and through which Christians, regardless of denominational 
labels, can work and witness together in certain strategic areas of responsibility.

Report of Executive Board 

(*Starred items are for convention action. Other 
Items are for information only.) 

The Executive Board of the North Carolina Synod held regular quarterly 
meetings at the Church House since the last convention of Synod on the following 
dates: June 3, 1965; September 2, 1965; December 2, 1965; and March 10, 
1966. 

A Joint consultation of the Executive Board, Stewardship Committee, and 
District Deans, along with the Rev. Dr. Thorsten A. Gustafson, director of the 
Commission on Stewardship, Mr. George Innes, regional stewardship counselor, 
and the Rev. Dr. Voigt R. Cromer, a member of the Executive Council of the Lu- 
theran Church in America, was held at the Church House, October 13, 1965, to 
study and probe the stewardship life of the church. Actions of the joint con- 
sultation led to an accented stewardship emphasis during the closing months, 
of 1965, and to the creation of a synodical task force which is currently being 
mobilized. Further information is included in the report of the Stewardship Com- 
mittee. 

The annual joint meeting with the Executive Committee of the North Coralina 
Unit of Lutheran Crurch Men was held at the Holiday Inn, Salisbury, January 2, 
1966. The purpose of which was to elect a director to the Home Mission Founda- 
tion. A called meeting of the Executive Board was held immediately following 
the joint meeting.

Sections 1, 5, and 6 
Section 9 



Due to unacceptable variances, constitutions were not approved for six con- 
gregations during the synodical year. Secretary Lyerly was instructed to com- 
municate with these congregations whose constitutions were in conflict with the 
Synod and LCA constitutions, and to list the unacceptable variances, urging con- 
formity in these strategic areas. 

The following list of "absolute invariables" from the Approved Constitution 
for Congregations agreed upon by the Conference of Synodical Presidents is 
reprinted as follows: 
ARTICLE II 
ARTICLE III 
ARTICLE IV, 
ARTICLE V, 

Amendments to constitutions were approved for the following congregations: 
A Mighty Fortress, Charlotte 
Epiphany, Winston-Salem 
Faith, Conover 
2. Bethany-Holy Trinity, Boone, parish alignment, dissolution of, resolution for, 

A resolution on the dissolution of the Bethany-Holy Trinity Parish, Boone, 
was submitted to the Executive Board at its September 2, 1965 meeting by the 
Cabinet of the Northwestern District through the sub-committee on Ministers and 
Congregations, as follows: 

WHEREAS, (1) the greater part of the members of Holy Trinity Church, 
Boone, have transferred their membership to Grace Lutheran Church, Boone, thus 
leaving Holy Trinity without enough members to maintain congregational life, 
and 

(2) the remaining members of Holy Trinity are considering the possibility 



^78 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

of merging the congregation, including its membership and its material assets, 
with Grace Church, Boone, and 

(3) Holy Trinity is now a part of a parish with Bethany Church, sharing in 
the ownership of a parsonage located on ground owned by Bethany Church, and 

(4) Bethany Church has indicated by action of its church council its willing- 
ness to be separated from Holy Trinity and to buy the equity of Holy Trinity in 
their jointly owned parsonage, 

BE IT RESOLVED by the Cabinet of the Northwestern District of the North 
Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church in America, acting on behalf of the dis- 
trict, that we approve the separation of Holy Trinity Church from Bethany 
Church and the dissolution of the joint parish and encourage Holy Trinity to 
continue to move toward merger with Grace Church and Grace Church to be re- 
ceptive to this plan. 

Further, we recommend that, should such a merger be effected, Grace 
Church then assume responsibility for the maintenance of the church property 
of Holy Trinity at Deep Gap keeping the same in reasonably good repair and 
available for worship services in the faith and practice of the Lutheran Church 
whenever the same shall be desired and practicable, or for possible future use 
by the synod in reestablishing a congregation at Deep Gap; 

And, further, should Grace Church ever find itself unable to maintain 
such property of the present Holy Trinity Church at Deep Gap so as to keep it 
from falling into disrepair and misuse, Grace Church shall forthwith transfer title 
to such property to the North Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church in America 
for maintenance and oversight. 

The resolution was ADOPTED. 
3. Seminary graduate school, extension in Synod, study of 

At its meeting held March 10, 1966, the board authorized the appointment 
of a study committee to consult with college and seminary officials regarding the 
extension of the seminary graduate school on the campus of Lenoir Rhyne Col- 
lege, and went on record as favoring such a move by its willingness to make an 
initial investment of $1,000 from the Michael Peeler income. 
B. On Conventions 

1. 1967 convention, invitation for, acceptance of 

Upon the recommendation of the sub-committee on Conventions, the invita- 
tion from the Evangelical Lutheran Church of St. James, Concord, was accepted 
as the scene for the 1967 convention of synod. It was reported that the synod 
had last met at St. James in 1944, and the congregation has plans to complete 
a building program by 1967. 

2. 1967 convention, invitation for, acknowledgement of 
Acknowledgement was made of the invitation from St. Paul, Wilmington, 

for the 1967 convention, and appreciation was expressed to both Pastor J. 
Frank Davis, D.D. and congregation with regrets for not being able to accept 
their gracious invitation. 

3. Convention agenda, approval of 

Upon recommendation of the sub-committee on Conventions, the convention 
agenda as printed in the convention bulletin was APPROVED. 

4. Convention procedures, approval of 

The sub-committee on Conventions reported a general approval of the pre- 
cedures followed at the 1965 convention, and that a running record of the time 
spent on items and reports of the convention proceedings would be useful in 
making time allotments for future conventions. In view of the fact that the 
procedure followed at the 1965 convention was for that convention only, the 
Executive Board APPROVED the following recommendations of the sub-committee 
on Conventions: 

*(a) — That the Executive Board recommend to synod that it suspend for the 
1966 convention the operation of By-Law Section l-D-3: "Reports from institu- 
tions and committees shall be limited to 30 minutes unless the occasion demands 
an extension of time granted by the president. Greetings shall be limited to five 
minutes", and that reports of institutions and committees, and greetings be 
limited to the time alloted to them by the Executive Board. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 179 

*(b) — That the Executive Board recommend that the convention of synod 
amend By-Law Section l-D-3 by striking the words "thirty minutes" and in- 
serting the words "the time alloted by the Executive Board," which would cause 
the By-Law to read: 

"Reports from institutions and committees shall be limited to the time 
allotted by the Executive Board unless the occasion demands an extension of 
time granted by the president. Greetings shall be limited to five minutes." 

C. On Committees and Auxiliaries 

1. Committees and Auxiliaries, minutes and reports, request for 

Since it is the duty of the sub-committee on Committees and Auxiliaries to 
review actions and activities of committees and auxiliaries, the sub-committee 
requested that committees and auxiliaries submit copies of their minutes and 
reports of activities to this sub-committe by placing it on their mailing list so 
that said sub-committee might be more conversant with the activities of com- 
mittees and auxiliaries. 

President Whittecar referred to the constitutional provision requiring 
committees to report annually to the convention of synod and semi-annually to 
the Executive Board (See By-Laws, Section VII-A-4, P. 27). 

Items of information and interest lifted from copies of committee and 
auxiliary minutes and reports were brought to the attention of the board during 
the convention year. 

2. North Carolina Lutheran, matters pertaining to 

Upon proper motion of the sub-committee on Committees and Auxiliaries, 
the following recommendations were APPROVED: 

(a) That beginning January 1, 1966, the North Carolina Lutheran is to be 
published semi-monthly (24 copies per year) instead of bi-weekly (26 copies) per 
year. The economy factor was cited as the reason for the reduction in number 
of copies; 

(b) That salaries of the Editor, Assistant Editor, and Business-Circulation 
Manager of the North Carolina Lutheran be increased as follows: Editor, from 
$600 to $864; Assistant Editor, from $250 to $432; Business - Circulation 
Manager, from $600 to $864. 

D. On Budget and Finance 

1 . Budget study sheets, use of 

At beard meetings, the sub-committee on Budget and Finance kept board 
members well informed as to the status of the synodical finances, along with 
the quarterly reports of Treasurer Charles S. Heilig, by means of comparative 
study sheets showing disbursements compared with budgeted amounts. 

2. Michael Peeler Fund Income, appropriations from 

Upon recommendation of the sub-committee on Budget and Finance, the 
following appropriations from the Michael Pesler Fund earnings were approved 
for 1965: 

(a) Supplement to Synodical Budget 

for Ministerial Education $10,000 

(b) Summer Church Vocations Program 2,000 

(c) Michael Peeler Professorship 15,000 

(d) North Carolina Lutheran Homes 5,000 

Total Appropriations $32,000 

Note (a) — The supplement was occasioned by the needs caused by an in- 
creasing number of students applying for aid and requests for extra funds for 
special needs which present a more realistic picture of what was actually needed 
for beneficiary aid; 

Note (b) — Mr. Larry Yoder was employed as the field representative of the 
Committee on Church Vocations during the summer of 1965 to implement the 
program which was inaugurated the previous summer. The field work included 
contacts with young people reached the previous summer who expressed an 
interest in either the ministry or full time church vocations, conferences with 
pastors in guidance programs, and chairmen of Christian education committees 



180 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

in assisting them to fulfill their obligations in "bringing the call to the ministry of 
the Gospel and to other full time church vocations to the attention of qualified 
youth of the congregation". 

Note (c) — The first payment of $15,000 toward the Michael Peeler Pro- 
fessorship established by action of the 1965 convention (See 1965 Proceedings, 
Pages 138, 159) was remitted to Board of Trustees of Lenoir Rhyne College for 
immediate investment; 

Note (d) — -The grant of $5,000 was applied toward the Homes' indebtedness. 

3. Mission Congregations, first units, grants for 

Realizing the rising costs of financing first unit building programs of mis- 
sion congregations, and in order to assure mission congregations of a sense of 
synodical partnership, the board approved the following action in regard to its 
home mission program: 

That in 1966, the synod give, from the Michael Peeler Fund income, to each 
mission congregation in the synod that enters into the first unit building 
program the sum of $5,000, as the money becomes available, for application 
to the cost of such building, and that the Board of American Missions be 
so notified so that such gifts may be included in the church building pro- 
gram for each congregation affected, and that this action be reviewed year 
by year. 

President Whittecar informed the board that the recommendation is in 
harmony with the rules of the church as expressed through the Board of Ameri- 
can Missions or the procedures of the board in financing building programs which 
permit this kind of assistance. It is necessary to report any grant designated for 
a mission congregation to the board for inclusion in the mission's first unit build- 
ing program. 

4. North Carolina Council of Churches, contributions to 

The board APPROVED an additional contribution of $300 for the operating 
budget of the North Carolina Council of Churches as the synod's pro rata share 
due to the fact that previous assignments for 1 965 had been based on the 1 964 
budget, and a grant of $500 for the Council's social action program as previous- 
ly done during the years 1963 and 1964. The above contributions in amount of 
$800 were drawn from the contingency item of the synodical budget. 

5. Church House, roofing repairs, costs of 

Repairs were made to the roofing vents which had resulted in leakage in 
several rooms at the Church House, at a cost to the synod of $275. The total 
costs in amount of $743.23 were shared by the Architect and the Roofing Com- 
pany.

4. ^Ministerial Confidences, statutory protection, resolution for 

At the 1 965 Convention, Pastor George Shuford presented a resolution re- 
garding statutory protection of ministerial confidences as provided by the LCA 
Constitution, By-Laws, Section II - Ministers, Item 2. (See 1965 Proceedings, 
Page 236-237) 

By action of the convention, the resolution was referred to the Executive 
Board for further study and with power to act. The Executive Board referred the 
Shuford resolution to its Legal committee for study and report of its findings. 
At the board meeting held March 10, 1966, the Legal committee submitted its 
report and recommendation. 

Instead of drafting a document for legislature approval, the Legal com- 
mittee deemed it advisable to speak to the problem and encourage the N. C. 
Legislature to draft an appropriate piece of legislation by convention vote. 

The Executive Board recommends the following resolution to the synod for 
adoption: 

WHEREAS, the Constitution of the Lutheran Church in America provides: 
"In keeping with the historic discipline and practice of the Lutheran church 
and to be true to a sacred trust inherent in the nature of the pastoral office, no 
minister of the Lutheran Church in America shall divulge any confidential dis- 
closure given to him in the course of his care of souls or otherwise in his pro- 
fessional capacity, except with the express permission of the person who has 
confided in him or in order to prevent a crime." 

AND WHEREAS, the General Statutes of the State of North Carolina do not 
provide for the absolute protection of this privilige to the minister, but rather 
provide that it is in the discretion of the trial judge as to whether or not a 
minister may be required to divulge a confidential communication; 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 185 



AND WHEREAS, in the event a Lutheran minister is required by the trial 
judge to divulge such confidential communication, he is then required to either 
violate the laws of the Lutheran Church in America or be subject to punishment 
for contempt of court; 

AND WHEREAS, it is the consensus of this Convention that the General 
Statutes of North Carolina should be so amended as to provide absolute pro- 
tection to a minister in regard to the revealing of confidential communications 
wherein the laws of his particular church require that he shall not reveal such 
communication; 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Convention of the North 
Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church in America: 

1. That the General Assembly of the State of North Carolina is respectfully 
requested at its next regular session to enact legislation so as to provide that no 
ordained minister, the laws of whose church prohibit the disclosure of con- 
fidential communications between a minister and a communicant, shall be re- 
quired to testify in any action, suit or proceeding concerning any information 
which may have been confidentially communicated to him in his professional 
capacity under such circumstances that to disclose the information would violate 
a sacred or moral trust, when the giving of such testimony is objected to by the 
communicant. 
5. LCA Conventions, delegates to, appointment of 

A communication was read from Dr. Martin E. Carlson of the LCA office 
relative to provision for the appointment of delegates to the LCA convention by 
the synod president when that synod's delegation was not complete. The follow- 
ing by low or standing resolution authorizing such appointment was suggested 
by Dr. Carlson and was received as information: 

"When it becomes evident that a ministerial or lay delegate elected by this 
synod is unable to be in attendance prior to the afternoon session on the third 
day of a convention of the Lutheran Church in America, and no elected alternate 
delegate is available, the president of the synod may appoint a substitute." 
F. On Property 

Upon recommendation of the Property committee, the following actions were 
taken: 

1. Church House Equipment, pieces of 

Three pieces of church house equipment were purchased; a 16 mm Graflex 
movie projector, with screen, and a collator for assembling purposes. 

2. Synod's Cars, trading of, policy on 

The Executive Board adopted as its policy to trade synod's cars at the end 
of two years of service, or at 50,000 miles, whichever comes first, and that 
the trading of the two synod's cars be staggered (one each year); that the first 
trade under this policy be a 1966 model, in the line of Buick, Pontiac, Oldsmo- 
bile, or equivalent, and that specifications be prepared for competitive bids. 

Mr. Craig Barnhardt, chairman of the committee, prepared a set of specifica- 
tions and sent copies to a number of automotive dealers for trade-in-allowances 
and bids on two new cars Later, he submitted bids from three dealers in 
Salisbury and one in Newton. Low bids were reported from the Salisbury 
Motor Company (Buick), and the Eller Motor Company of Newton (Buick). Bids 
were approved from the Salisbury Motor Company on synod's 1963 car in 
amount of $1,987.32, and from Eller Motor Company of Newton on synod's 
1961 ccr, in amount of $2,561.16. 

The costs for the above two cars were drawn from the contigency funds of 
the 1965 and 1966 budgets. 

3. Church House Property, right of way, change of 

It was reported that a twelve acre tract of land lying back of the Church 
House in a northwesterly direction had been purchased by Mr. J. M. Tucker, 
Salisbury building developer, and that the original right of way affording road 
privileges into the property came within an objectionable twenty feet of the 
synodical building. Several conferences were also reported with the owners of 
the adjoining properties with the idea of exchanging a front triangle owned by 
the synod for a back triange owned by J. M. Hall, and sisters of Granite Quarry 



186 PR OCEEDINGS O F THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

in order to re-route the right of way. A composite sketch of the three adjoining 
properties with the re-routing of the access road was shown to board members. 
Upon proper recommendation, the following action was taken: 
That an exchange of two triangles of properties owned by synod and J. M. 
Hall and sisters, for the purpose of re-routing the right of way, be consum- 
mated; that the officers and staff, along with Dr. H. E. Isenhour, a member of 
the Property committee, be charged with the final details of the exchange; and 
that the officers of synod be authorized to execute the necessary documents for 
releases and deeds. 

The exchange has been consummated, and all releases and new deeds have 
been properly executed. 
G. On Personnel

VII. Recommendations of Camp Committee to Executive Board 
1. Camping Program, studies and reports of 

The Camp Committee has been active during the year and appeared before 
the Executive Board at each of its quarterly meetings with certain recommenda- 
tions of its proposals and reports of studies as authorized by the Executive Board 
in connection with the committee's recommendations. 

The committee has given diligent study to the camping potential of the synod, 
and made it quite clear from the outset that the camping program as envisioned 
by the committee is not in conflict or competition with the program now being 
offered at Lutheridge but sought only to complement it. 

In pursuit of camping objectives, the committee has in mind the development 
of conference and retreat centers in strategic areas. A map was displayed show- 
ing possible locations of conference and retreat centers beginning with the 
Piedmont area and working eastward, as Lutheridge accommodates the western 
part of the synod. 

Reports of the committee included descriptions of types of facilities needed 
for conference and retreat areas with special emphasis on the small group ap- 
proach. The pilot project as recommended by the committee would include 12 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 187 

campers camping two weeks with three advisers in a rustic setting to be used as 
a basis for determining the value and potential of such a program. It was 
later reported that this project had been dropped due to infeasibility at this 
time. 

As early as its June 3, 1965 meeting, the committee made the above re- 
port, and the board approved the following recommendations: 

1. That the board give general approval of the Camp committee's program 
with the understanding that no undertaking of the committee will be 
begun involving synodical money without prior approval of the board. 

2. That the committee be given permission to investigate available property 
and develop a master plan initiating a program of church camping, 
conferences and retreats for our synod. 

3. That the committee be given permission to develop a pilot camping 
program of one or two weeks duration for the summer of 1966, if feas- 
ible, and that the committee present estimated cost of such a project to 
the Executive Board at its Fall Meeting for approval. 

4. Inasmuch as the committee had already spent its budgeted amount for 
1965, the board approved an additional allocation of $300, to be taken 
from the contingency fund, to the Camp committee to coninue its 
studies of camping potential, program, and properties. 

At the September 2, 1965 board meeting, the committee submitted recom- 
mendations that the synod begin to develop a program of securing property to 
meet camping needs of the synod as outlined by the committee. The committee 
also recommended the appointment of a sub-committee to act with the Camp 
committee in evaluating suggested sites. 

The committee was instructed to pursue further its investigation and studies 
of prospective sites subject to final action taken by the synod. The board ap- 
proved the appointment of the sub-committee as recommended by the com- 
mittee. The following sub-committee was appointed by the president of synod: 

The Rev. John W. Cobb 

Conrad B. Wessell, Jr. 

Bachman S. Brown, Jr. 

2. Professional Services, request for 

At the December 2, 1 965 board meting, the committee requested the au- 
thorization to engage the services of a professional guidance consultant in the 
study and selection of camp sites, and recommended that Professor Charles C. 
Stott, of the Department of Parks and Recreation, N. C. State University, Ra- 
leigh, be employed as consultant. 

Authorization was given to the Camp commitee to negotiate with Professor 
Stott as to costs involved and to report back to the board. 

The proposal of Professor Stott to the Camp committee was submitted to the 
Executive Board at its March 10, 1965 meeting. 

The presentation of the proposal was prefaced by an introductory statement 
that the proposal to the satisfaction of Professor Stott had been reviewed and 
revised by Mr. Paul Cornell of the LCA Board of Parish Education, who had 
been brought into consultations with the committee earlier, and who, himself, 
recommended a camp consultant. 

The proposal of Professor Stott outlining his plannning and consulting serv- 
ices are stated in Phases I & II. 

Phase l-Sire Selection — Investigation of each site, at $100 plus 10^ per 
mile. (It is entirely posible that more than one trip may be necessary before a 
report could be prepared. Mileage would only be charged on one round trip.) 
The Camp Commitee will determine the number of trips to be made to each 
site. 

Phase ll-Master Plan — An exhaustive site study, and preparation master 
plan to met the synod's requirements. This phase to include locating and iden- 
tifying administration and service areas, living units, outpost camping, family 
camping (if included), power lines, major roads, etc. 

Included also rough cost estimates, development phases and priorities, consul- 
tation with committee's architect, conservation plans for vegetation and fire pro- 



188 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



teclion, and supplying six copies of master plan. The planner would be available 
for other services such as, color slide presentations, (promotion dinners, etc.), re- 
viewing architectural plans and further collaborations with committee or architect. 

Fee: Phase II — $2,200 — Payment schedule: One-half due upon completion 
of preliminary plan and balance upon completion of final plan and services de- 
scribed above. 

The Executive Board authorized the Camp commitee to enter into a con- 
tract with Professor Charles C. Stott of Raleigh, according to above proposal, the 
said costs to be charged against the contingency item of the budget. 

Vlil. Recommendation of Committee on Church Vocations to Executive Board 
Church Vocations, psychological testing, clinical psychologist, employment of 

Referring to the minutes of the meeting of the Committee on Church Voca- 
tions held November 22, 1965, the sub-committee on Committees and Auxiliaries 
reported on action by that Committee approving a recommendation that Dr. 
Kenneth Nickerson of Asheville-Biltmore College be employed as clinical psy- 
chologist for the Church Vocations Commitee on a fee basis of $10.00 (ten 
dollars) per hour portal to portal, with an additional 10^ per mile for travel, 
and that a report of this action be submitted to the Executive Board for clarifica- 
tion and implementation. 

President Whittecar clarified the matter by saying that such a procedure as 
psychological testing is a part of the overall plan for guidance of ministerial stu- 
dents under the supervision of the Boards of College Education and Theological 
Education. He said that the services of the clinical psychologist consisted of a 
battery of tests given to those registered as ministerial candidates and full time 
church vocations candidates, an interpretation of the results of such tests, and 
counseling with those with particular problems. He said further that one of 
the responsibilities of the Committee on Church Vocations is to ferret out and 
guide away from the ministry those who obviously would be misfits, and en- 
courage those who hove special aptitudes for ministerial services. He described 
the psychological testing as "an additional resource" to assist the Church Vo- 
cations Committee to measure the abilities and potentialities of ministerial can- 
didates. He stated further that the Board of Theological Education is offering 
to each synod up to $1,000 to make available this type of testing and guidance. 

The Executive Board ADOPTED the following recommendation of the Com- 
mittee on Church Vocations: 

"That Dr. Kenneth Nickerson of Asheville-Biltmore College be employed as 
clinical psychologist for the Church Vocations Committee on a fee basis of 
$10.00 (ten dollars) per hour portal-to-portal, with an additional 10$ per mile 
for travel." 

IX. Progress Reports on Campus Ministry Campaign to Executive Board 

Progress reports on the Campus Ministry Campaign were presented to the 
Executive Board at its September, December, and March meetings. 

The first report was presented by President George R. Whittecar at the 
September meeting. It was announced that Mr. Paul Eastland of the Lutheran 
Laymen's Movement Fund Raising Service would direct the appeal, and that 
he would begin the survey phase of the campaign September 29 for one month 
to October 29, 1965. President Whittecar read from the contract signed by 
parties of both parts, outlining the agreements by both parties as set forth in 
the document for the survey phase. 

The following replacements were made to the Campus Advisory Committee: 

V/ade Coffey, Grace, Boone, replacing Glenn Ketner; 

John W. Foust, M.D., St. Mark, Charlotte, replacing Joe C. Ridenhour. 

At the December meeting, the director, Mr. Paul Eastland, reported on the 
pre-campaign study and survey. He reported that the official name of the 
campaign was CAMPUS (The Church Advances its Ministry and Program for 
University Students). He stated that the purpose of the pre-campaign study 
was to test understanding of the proposed program among laymen and pastors, 
to ascertain their evaluation of probable attitudes of members of their congrega- 
tions toward the proposal and whether the general membership was adequately 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 189 

informed concerning the program Gnd campaign. An effort was made to evaluate 
the interest of laymen in the program and their willingness to support the pro- 
gram on congregational, district, and synodical levels. He reported that during 
the preliminary period from September 29 through October 30, 55 interviews 
were held with key laymen and pastors throughout the synod, and that a dis- 
tance of some 3,000 miles had been covered. 

According to his findings, he expressed his conviction that a capital funds 
campaign for Campus ministry facilities could be successfully prosecuted in the 
synod. 

Mr. Eastland outlined steps in the intensive phase of preparation, consisting of 
briefing sessions for pastors in early January, a synod wide rally featuring LCA 
President Franklin Clark Fry, January 23, 1966, at the Keppel Auditorium, Ca- 
tawba College, Salisbury, cluster rallies for key laymen and pastors throughout 
the synod in February, advanced solicitations with the assistance of district 
deans, and every member visitations in March, culminating in Victory Sunday 
April 3. 

Mr. Eastland also presented a progress report to the board at its March 
10, 1966 meeting, and expressed high hopes for a fruitful campaign. 

Mr. Eastland was assisted in the campaign by Mr. Clinton Schraeder during 
the intensive phase of the campaign. 

X. Recommendation of Youth Committee to Executive Board 

The Executive Board at its December meeting expressed a deep concern over 
the youth program of the church, and described it as "critical and disturbing". 
The board took action to commend the Youth Committee of the synod upon the 
work that it is doing and to encourage the committee to continue its study and 
work in this strategic area of Kingdom service. A consultation on youth min- 
istry under the leadership of the Youth Committee was approved to prepare a re- 
port based on its study of needs and directions. 

In response to the discussion and action of the Executive Board concerning 
youth ministry in the North Carolina Synod, the Youth Committee submitted to 
the board at its March meeting the following proposal for consideration and 
adoption:

Youth Ministry", in cooperation with the Youth Committee, to — 

a) gather from each congregation three representatives, the pastor, one 
adult worker with youth, and one young person 

b) for communication from a member of the staff of the Commission on 
Youth Activities of the Church concerning the emerging of Youth Min- 
istry in the LCA. 

c) and communication to this staff member of the needs and concerns of 
our pastors, congregations and people 

d) bcsed upon a pre-conference mailing of background materials to persons 
attending 

e) and involving the three congregational representatives in discussion of 
the implications of Youth Ministry for their congregation as the first 
step in continuing discussion "at home."

cover costs of meals and lodging for three congregational representatives from 
each congregation. 

a) For the Central, Northern and Southern Districts, Friday evening, April

the best possible stewardship of the fund. He outlined the services of the 
Babson's Investment Service, Wesley Hills, Mass., an advisory service, with 
representatives in Charlotte and Winston-Salem, consisting of a comprehensive 
analysis of the assets of the Fund, an appraisal at 90-day intervals, consultation

"I-D-3, which reads: 

Reports from institutions and committees shall be limited to 30 minutes 
unless the occasion demands an extension of time granted by the presi- 
dent. Greetings shall be limited to five minutes." (See Item VI-B-4a.) 

2. That Synod amend By-Law Section l-D-3, by striking the words "thirty 
minutes and inserting the words "the time alloted by the Executive 
Board", which would cause the By-Law to read:

allotted by the Executive Board unless the occasion demands an extension 
of time granted by the president. Greetings shall be limited to five

Fifth Meeting 

(Wednesday Afternoon, May 4, 1966-1:45-5:00 o'clock) 

Memorial Service 

A memorial service was held for the Rev. Brunner Eugene Petrea, D.D. The 
Order for the Burial of the Dead was conducted by the Rev. R. Douglas Fritz, 
convention chaplain as follows: 

Hymn 144 "For All the Saints Who From Their Labors Rest" 

Invocation, Kyrie, Antiphon and Psalm 23 (sung) Page 253 

The Lesson 

In Memoriam and Meditation The Rev. Wilford Lyerly, 

Secretary N. C. Synod 

The Prayers 

Hymn 520 "Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah" 

The Benediction 

The Rev. Wilford Lyerly, necrologist and secretary of the synod, delivered 
the memorial tribute and message based on the text: "You will be sorrowful, but 
your sorrow shall be turned into joy . . . and your joy no man taketh from 
you", St. John 16:20 and 22(b). 

Secretary Lyerly paid tribute to Dr. Petrea as a beloved pastor, an accurate 
statistician, a fair editor, and a faithful servant of Christ. He also referred to a 
number of lay leaders who were translated from the church militant to the 
church triumphant since the lost convention whose names are not written in the 
records of synod, but are written indelibly in the Lamb's Book of Life. 

Speaking of immortality, Secretary Lyerly said that it is not enough to know 
that we shall live on in the minds and memories of mankind, even in the lives of 
unborn generations through one's influence that never ends, or to live on in 
the annals and records of history. Neither social nor historical immortality can 
satisfy the desires of life to live. Easter, he said, assures us of personal im- 
mortality.

The Rev. Brunner Eugene Petree, D. D. 

The Rev. Brunner Eugene Petrea, D.D., 81, retired minister of the North 
Carolina Synod since 1955, died in the Lowman Home, Saturday evening, Oc- 
tober 2, 1965, at 6:30 o'clock, following several years of declining health. 

Dr. Petrea was born September 22, 1 884, in Cabarrus County. He was 
educated at the Mt. Plecsant Collegiate Institute, Newberry College, and the Lu- 
theran Theological Southern Seminary. He was ordained by the Evangelical Lu- 
theran Synod and Ministerium of North Carolina in St. John Lutheran Church, 
Cabarrus County, in 1913. He received on honorary Doctor of Divinity degree 
from Lenoir Rhyne College in 1951. 

He was married to Anna Umberger of Wytheville, Virginia, October 1, 1919. 
He is survived by his wife and two daughters, Mrs. Herman W. Cauble of Co- 
lumbia, South Carolina, and Mrs. Lloyd M. Guenther of Berkeley, California. 

Dr. Petrea served the following parishes: St. John - Lebanon, Wytheville, 
Va., 1913-1919; St. Paul - Immanuel - Mt. Union - St. Luke, Uniontown, Mary- 
land, 1919-1921; St. Matthew, Wilmington, 1921-1928; St. Paul - Antioch- 
Philedelphia, Dallas, 1928-1932; Union, Salisbury, 1932-1949; and Nazareth- 
Shiloh, Rural Hall, 1949-1954. 

Dr. Petrea was active in synodical affairs, serving as editor of the North Caro- 
lina Lutheran for twelve years, 1937-1949, and as statistical secretary for twenty 
five years, 1934-1959. He served on the Executive Committee of synod, Board 
of Trustees of the Southern Seminary, and six times as a delegate to the United 
Lutheran Church Conventions. 

The burial service was held Monday afternoon, October 4, at 3:00 o'clock, 
in St. John's Lutheran Church, Cabarrus County, with the Rev. C. Lee Shipton, 
pastor, and the Rev. George R. Whittecar, D.D., president of synod, in charge 
of the service. Interment followed in the church cemeetry.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON REFERENCE AND COUNSEL 

Chairman Marion Starr reported in behalf of the Committee on Reference 
and Counsel as follows: 

The Committee on Reference and Counsel would suggest the following 
changes in Wednesday afternoon's agenda: 

1. That following the report of the L.C.A. representative we resume 
business with the report of the Executive Board where it left off before 
the noon recess. 

2. That the Report of the Youth Committee, numbered 6 for Tuesday 
afternoon, be moved to the Thursday morning schedule to follow No. 
6, the report of the Camp Committee. 

3. That in place of this Youth Committee report, we put the Executive 
Board report which includes the motion on legal matters on privileged 
communication. 

The report was adopted. 

Presentation of LCA Representative 

Mrs. Ruth Grigg Horting, L.H.D., a member of the Executive Council of the 
Lutheran Church in America and prominent in political and public life, was 
presented to the convention as the official representative of the Lutheran 
Church in America and was received by a rising ovation. Dr. Horting gave the 
first part of her presentation regarding the state of the church, describing trends 
in the church, informing the convention of certain recommendations of the 
Executive Council to be submitted to the LCA Kansas City Convention, and re- 
ferring to position statements from the Board of Social Ministry on Church and 
State, Capital Punishment, Religious Liberty, and Poverty also to be acted upon 
at the biennial convention. 

Dr. Horting outlined the trends in the church with four classic words, name- 
ly, adaptation, specialization, preparation, and cooperation, as they relate to the 
agencies, boards and commissions of the church. 

The chief characteristic of the soaring '60's is the change, she said, and 
then proceeded to review the activities of the boards of the church against the 
background of change. She listed the dramatic changes as follows: growth and 
mobility of population, the technological revolution, an affluent society, and the 
new morality. Against this backdrop of change, she continued, the LCA takes 
shape as the sixth denomination in size with 3,265,000 members, and gears 
its programs to meet the needs of a changing world. 

Deploring the failure of the church to meet its budget, she said that the 
Executive Council spent many heart-breaking hours denying requests and re- 
ducing allotments to the boards to a point of 10% lower than that authorized 
by the 1964 Pittsburgh Convention, and that eleven of fifteen operating units 
will have their budgets reduced in 1967 on the basis of the budget to be pre- 
sented to the Kansas City Convention. 

In regard to parish education, Dr. Horting said that 92 96 of the con- 
gregations are using the new curriculum, and that in 1967 the board's work of 
introducing materials will be complete, and that the board will then concentrate 
on assistance with special problems. 

Mrs. Horting concluded her presentation at this time by pointing to the 
two way traffic in that the congregation finds its fulfillment in the universal 
church, and that the universal church finds fulfillment in the congregation. 

President Whittecar thanked Dr. Horting for the first part of her informative 
and provocative presentation. 

REPORT OF THE EXECUTIVE BOARD (continued) 

Board member Paul Morgcn was recognized to resume his review of execu- 
tive board matters appearing in the report of the Executive Board, beginning 
with Item Vl-D, and extending through Item VI-D-5, to the budget which was 
a special assignment. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 197 



President Whittecar opened that portion of the report which had been 
reviewed by board member Morgan for questions and pertinent remarks. That 
portion up to the budget was then closed. 

In connection with Recommendation 3 of the Executive Board which recom- 
mended the adoption of the 1967 budget as printed in the convention bulletin, 
Charles Heilig, treasurer and board member, was recognized for the presentation 
of the budget. 

Treasurer Heilig presented Parts A, B, and C of the budget, explaining it 
part by part, and item by item, and denoting the increases and decreases in the 
items so affected, it was pointed out that the decrease in synod's apportionment 
to N. C. Lutheran Homes was due to its reduction in indebtedness. It was 
explained that apportionments to jointly-owned institutions are agreed upon by 
the presidents of the Southern synods. 

Dr. Ernest Misenheimer presented Part D of the budget, and spoke of the 
need for developing a new image in this phase of the synod's budget as he 
projected additional needs not included in Parts A, B, and C of the budget, as 
listed in the printed addendum to Part D. 

Treasurer Charles Heilig then moved the adoption of the budget. 

Mr. Tom Kern, delegate from St. John, Salisbury, offered an amendment to 
Part C-l and 2, as follows: 

Be it resolved that the salaries and housing allowance of the synodical 
officers for the 1967 budget be changed to read cs follows: 

SALARIES HOUSING 

1. President $10,500.00 $3,600.00 

2. Asst. to Pres. 7,500.00 2,800.00 

3. Secretary 6,800.00 2,400.00 

4. Sec. of Ch. Ed. 6,500.00 2,400.00 

Pastor Paul Conrad introduced a motion authorizing the appointment of a 
special committee to make a comparative study of salaries of other LCA officers 
and staff and that the study committee report its findings to the 1967 convention 
of Synod. 

President Whittecar ruled the motion as an amendment to Mr. Kern's 
amendment and not as a substitute motion. 

Pastor Conrad's amendment was put to the convention and was lost. 
Mr. Kern's amendment was then put to the convention and was lost. 
Mr. Kern submitted to the convention the following resolution: 
Be it resolved, that a committee, appointed by the President of the 
Synod, consisting of one layman from each district of synod and a 
general chairman to: 

a. Study and make a definite proposal to the next convention of synod, 
of a long range plcn of compensation for the officers of the synod. 

b. Study and make recommendation at the next convention of synod of 
guidelines for congregations in the matter of pastors' compensation. 

c. And that this committee submit to the next convention of synod a pro- 
posed meaningful and substantial program of grants-in-and which would 
assist in the church's recruitment of highly qualified young men for 
the Gospel Ministry. 

The resolution was adopted. 

It was understood that this resolution included a comparative study of the 
salaries of other LCA officers and staff, the idea that Pastor Conrad projected 
in his amendment. 

In view of the resolution adopted, Mr. Kenneth Cruse, a delegate from 
Calvary, Concord, moved an amendment to Part C-l, that compensation to per- 
sonnel be maintained at the 1966 level in amount of $52,095. 



198 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

The amendment was lost. 

Dr. Albert H. Keck, Jr. spoke in behalf of an increase to the North Caro- 
lina Council of Churches to be more in line with the synod's pro rata share 
based on the Council's new basis of apportionment, and offered an amendment 
to C-8, Miscellaneous, N. C. Council of Churches, revising upward the amount 
from $2,500 to $2,700, making the total for C-8 to read $12,950 instead of 
$12,750, and making the total budget of the synod to read $1,246,138 in- 
stead of $1,245,938. 

An amendment made by Pastor Everette Horn that Item D-l of the Adden- 
dum be added to Part B, thus increasing the apportionment to the Southern 
Seminary in amount of $4,000, was lost. 

The budget as amended was adopted.

Beginning with September 1966 we will begin the program of Psychological 
Testing in cooperation with the Board of Theological Education of The L.C.A. 
which we believe will be of tremendous help in carrying on the work assigned to 
the Committee on Church Vocations. 

We recognize with gratitude, the generous assistance given to the work of 
Church Vocations by congregations and individuals throughout the Synod and we 
would encourage the continuation of this help. It would be of assistance to the 
commitee if such aid were channelled through the committee, or that the com- 
mittee be kept informed of such gifts. We would encourage more congregations 
and groups to consider this worthy cause. 

It appears now that the Quickie Scholarship Foundation will be able to pro- 
duce at least one scholarship for the 1966-67 academic year. The Board of 
Trustees for this Foundation is The President of The Seminary, The President of 
Lenoir Rhyne College, and The Chairman of The Church Vocations Committee. 

We are grateful to Almighty God for the work that has been accomplished 
fcr him during the past year and for the encouragement and assistance given 
by pastors and laymen, and we ask for your prayers in the future. We call 
attention to the continuing need for fulltime church workers and urge pastors 
and others who work with young people, to keep before them the challenge of full- 
time church work as well as the importance of being Christian in whatever vo- 
cation they might choose. Please send names of young people who manifest an 
insrest in fulltime church work to the chairman of the committee, so that we 
may keep in touch with them through one or more of our sub-committees.

The report was presented by the committee's chairman, the Rev. Walter 
N. Yount, who made the following deletions from the list of students, namely, 
Joseph Anderson Motley, Michael Tysinger (Lenoir Rhyne, seniors), and Terry 
Sifford (Lenoir Rhyne, junior). Chairman Yount reported 49 seminary students 
in the various stages of their theological study, and challenged delegates to 
keep the idea of church vocations in the thinking of the church's youth, and 
also urged the Lutheran Church Men to consider such encouragement as one of 
its special projects. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 201 



Pastor Horace Lindler also spoke of seeking out men for the ministry and 
asked for the cooperation of congregations in their Christian attitudes towards 
ministers and their ministries as an added encouragement for young men to enter 
the ministry. 

The report was adopted. 

REPORT OF EXECUTIVE BOARD 

Board member Jack E. Smith was recognized to continue the review of the 
Executive Board's report, and gave a running summary of the report, beginning 
with Item Vl-E. 

Bachman Brown, Jr., executive board member, and a member of the sub- 
committee on legal matters, was recognized in connection with Item VI-E-4, on 
Ministerial Confidences in connection with Recommendation 4 of the Executive 
Board. 

Prefacing the presentation of the resolution, Mr. Brown stated that the 
resolution introduced at the last convention had been prompted by a bill killed 
by the state legislature to guarantee ministerial confidences held inviolate by 
the Lutheran Church in America as so stated in its constitution. He said that 
one of the difficulties had to do with the definition of a minister. Mr. Brown 
also said that his sub-committee and the Executive Board hesitated to speak to 
a specific piece of legislation, but judged it advisable to express the desires 
of the convention and appeal to the legislature on grounds of a general principle 
involved in guarding ministerial confidences. 

Mr. Brown then read the resolution as printed in the convention bulletin, 
and then moved Recommendation 4 of the Executive Board. 

Discussion centered in the word "communicant". Attorney Kenneth Cruse 
clarified the issue by saying that "communicant" means "communicator" and 
expressed his belief that the burden should rest upon the minister instead of the 
communicator in the last sentence. 

Pastor George Shuford, instigator of the resolution, offered an amendment 
to substitute the word "communicant" for "communicator" in the fourth line 
of the resolution section, and to substitute the word "minister" for "com- 
municant" in the last sentence before the period. 

The amendment was adopted. 

The resolution as amended was adopted. (Continued p. 241)

(Wednesday Evening, May 4, 1966, 7:30-10:00 o'clock) 

Devotions were conducted by the convention chaplain, the Rev. R. Douglas 
Fritz. The Evening Suffrages were used, including Psalm 124 and the Lesson 
from 1 Corinthians 1: 4-10. 

Reference and Counsel: The Committee on Reference and Counsel recom- 
mended through its chairman, Marion Starr, that the convention proceed with 
the scheduled agenda without variation, returning to items of unfinished business 
hopefully before the end of the meeting. 

The recommendation was adopted. 

PRESENTATION OF LCA REPRESENTATIVE - PART II 

M\rs. Ruth Grigg Horting was recognized for Part II of her presentation 
on the state of the church and the work of its commissions and auxiliaries, and 
their emphasis to Set the Work Forward. 

Mrs. Horting catalogued briefly the commissions of the church and their 
chief concerns, as follows: Architecture - outstanding consultative services; 
Evangelism - witnessing where we are; Stewardship - synodical conferences in 
interests of reaching apportionment goals; Worship - holding of institutes, one 
being at Lutheridge; Press, Radio, and Television - preparation of new color 
Christmas special of Davey and Goliath; Church Papers - 549,000 circulation of 
The Lutheran; Youth - nothing short of success story of Miami Convention. 

The chief concern of the LCA Foundation lies in making of wills and 
stressing Christian responsibility. 

Mrs. Horting reported 285,000 Lutheran Church Women members in 
5,217 local units, and commended the North Carolina women for their 1 1 1.32% 
apportionment response. 

Referring to a study of men's work authorized by the 1964 Pittsburgh Con- 
vention, she said that the Executive Council would recommend the discontinu- 
ance of Lutheran Church Men on a church wide level. 

Speaking of inter-Lutheran cooperation, Mrs. Horting informed the con- 
vention delegates that the proposed Lutheran Council, successor to the National 
Lutheran Council, and representing 95% of the Lutherans in the USA, would 
come into being in 1967. She said that the president of the church, Dr. Franklin 
Clark Fry, described this new Council to be more of a "talkshop" than an action 
group. 

Mrs. Horting mentioned a few miscellaneous items as follows: 

(1) Name of Knubel-Miller lectures changed to Knubel-Miller-Greever 
series; 

(2) The offer of Dr. Fry to send LCA representatives to consult with 
synodical budget planning committees; 

(3) The year 1967 designated as the year of the Bible; 

(4) Study and survey being made for fixed date for Easter - suggested 
Sunday following second Saturday in April; 

(5) Survey of salaries by the Board of Pensions; 

(6) "Life - New Life" theme for 450th anniversary of Reformation on 
Oct. 29.

(7) Retirement of Dr. Edmund Wagoner to be presented with medallion 

at Kansas City. 
Following a question and answer period, this ended the presentations of the 
official representative of the Lutheran Church in America. 

REPORT OF OPERATIONAL COMMITTEES 

With the exception of the report of the Operational Committee on Social 
Ministry having already been heard, it was operational committee night, as 
operational committees, namely, American missions, parish education, evangelism, 
and stewardship, reported on their plans, programs, and procedures. 

Report of the Committee on American Missions 

The Committee on American Missions had held four meetings since the last 
report, April 22, 1965, and September 14, 1965, at Salisbury and December 
14, 1965, at Chape! Hill, and March 31, 1966, at High Point. 

President George R. Whittecar is the chairman and the Rev. John D. 
Mauney, Jr. is secretary of the Committee. 

During the course of the year the Rev. H. E. Baumgartner, Jr., resigned from 
the committee and the Rev. Albert H. Keck, Jr., D.D. was named by the North- 
western District to take his place. In the district elections in February and 
March Mr. Grover Seamon of Grace Church, Thomasville, was elected to replace 
Mr. Herbert Thomas from the Northern District, and Mr. Luther Adams of Albe- 
marle was elected to replace Mr. Earl Propst of the Southern District. Other 
members were re-elected. 

During the year the sub-commitee membership was comprised as follows: Fi- 
nance & Business, the Rev. T. C. Plexico, chairman, Mr. Earl Propst, Mr. D. R. 
Mauney; Survey and Development, the Rev. Hoyle Whiteside, chairman, Mr. J.J. 
Lentz, Rev. J. D. Mauney, Jr.; Sustentation, the Rev. R. Douglas Fritz, chairman, 
Mr. Herbert Thomcs, the Rev. Jerry L. Hollar; Special projects, Mr. Authur 
Lackey, chairman, Mr. James Lingle, the Rev. H. E. Baumgartner, Jr., replaced by 
the Rev. Albert H. Keck, Jr., D.D. 

The committee works closely with the Rev. David F. Johnson, Regional Sec- 
retary of the Board of American Missions, who is an advisory member. Rev. 
J. Wilford Lyerly, Secretary of Synod, has assisted Secretary Johnson in making 
preliminary surveys of several fields and has taken special assignments on behalf 
of mission congregations and projects. 

CONGREGATIONS ORGANIZED 

Guilford College, Resurrection, the Rev. John Merck, developer. This con- 
gregation was formally organized November 14, 1965, with 60 confirmed and 
40 child members. The field had been entered in June, 1964, by Pastor Merck. 
The congregation worships in a Grange Hall near a public school about one mile 
southwest of Guilford College. It has a desirable site for building a church 
on Friendly Road one mile west of Guilford College. A small building on this 
property is used as a church office and meeting place for small groups. The 
congregation has called Pastor Merck as its pastor and is making application 
for membership in the synod at this convention. First Church and Our 
Father's Church in Greensboro have supported this mission project in a most 
helpful fashion. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 205 



Laurinburg, Living Word, the Rev. Setzer entered this field cs mission de- 
veloper immediately following his ordination in June, 1965. Worship services were 
scon started and are being held regularly in the Community Building in the 
central part of Laurinburg. A site for building a church has been secured by the 
Board of American Missions opposite the main gate of St. Andrew's College in 
the southwest area of Laurinburg. The congregation was organized April 24, 
1966. 

FIELDS ENTERED 

Welcome. This field was entered by the Rev. Paul M. Sorensen following 
his ordination and transfer from the Upper Michigan-Wisconsin Synod in July, 
1965. A personage was purchased by the Board of American Missions on Valley 
View Drive. A store building on the main street in Welcome has been rented 
and is being used for worship services. Negotiations are under way for a site 
facing on highway 52 between Welcome and Midway. This group has applied to 
the Board of American Missions for permission to organize. Congregations in 
the Lexington area have been very cooperative with this mission enterprise. 

ESkin. The Rev. Gilbert Goodman, mission developer. This mission con- 
tinues to carry on c whole congregational program even though it has not been 
organized. The place of meeting has been moved to a store building facing 
highway 67 in Jonesville near the building site. Although in small numbers, 
this group manifests a strong spirit which needs to be nurtured and maintained. 
The future of this development is under special study by the committee and the 
Board of American Missions. 

Mf. Airy. The Rev. Gerald Wise, mission developer. This field was enter- 
ed in 1964 and an interested group of persons has been holding worship services 
since that time. Difficulty has been had in finding adequate temporary quar- 
ters. Presently they are meeting on Sunday evenings at the Episcopal Church. 
Efforts to secure an adequate site have not been successful to this date. Never- 
theless, the mission shows promise of developing into a strong congregation. 

Atlantic Beach. The Rev. James Mansfield serves this mission development 
as an outreach of St. Timothy Church, Havelock. An attractive site is available 
to the mission in the center of the Atantic Beach community. Most of the 
members of this group, which worships in a store building, come from nearby 
Morehead City. It is anticipated that as this mission grows it can be organized 
as a second congregation in a parish with St. Timothy, Havelock. 

PARISH DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS 

Catawba, Ebenezer. This congregation has built a parsonage, with the 
assistance of the Board of American Missions, and is extending a call to a pastor. 

A strong rural church should develop here. 

Matthews, Morning Star, the Rev. Geogre W. Shuford, Pastor. This con- 
gregation occupies a strategic mission area in the eastern part of Mecklenberg 
County. 

Lewisville, Shiloh, the Rev. William Wood, Pastor. With the assistance of 
the Board of American Missions this congregation is renovating its church and 
building an education building adjacent. 

Advent, Spindale, the Rev. Phillip Deese, Pastor. Plans are underway for 
renovation of the present church and development of educational space. 

Lexington, Lebanon, this congregation is being served by the Rev. Paul M. 
Sorenson, mission developer at Welcome. Early in 1965 an addition consisting 
of several classrooms was made to the church building and a narthex was added 
at the front. 

New Bern, St. Andrews. This congregation has been given parish develop- 
ment status with the Board of American Missions with a view toward assisting it 
; n the development of its program and facilities. 



206 PROCEEDI NG S OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

NEW FIELDS TO BE ENTERED 

The Board of American Missions has extended calls to ministers to develop 
congregations in two fields: The Research Triangle area south of Durham and 
east of Chapel Hill, and the east side of Gastonia. If such calls are accepted, 
these fields can be entered soon. 

Calls hove been accepted by Seminarian Floyd Eugene Sides to develop the 
Research Triangle Area, Durham, and the Rev. G. Dwight Conrad, long time 
pastor of Bethany, Hickory, to develop the East Gastonia area. 

There are other opportunities in a number of communities in North Caro- 
lina that have been assigned by the National Lutheran Council, Division of 
American Missions, to the Lutheran Church in America for development. Sever- 
al of these have been approved by our Board of American Missions. Entrance 
will depend on the available resources of the board and available men. 

SUSTENTATION 
The following congregations have been granted sustentation assistance for 
application to pastors' salaries for 1966 at the annual rates indiccted: 

Andrews^ St. Andrew $ 600.00 

Banner Elk, Holy Communion 1,980.00 

Burlington, Mt. Pleasant 600.00 

Boone, Bethany 1,500.00 

Cleveland, Amity 1,680.00 

Cleveland, Lebanon 1,000.00

Mt. Pleasant, Mt. Gilead 840.00 

INITIAL EQUIPMENT 
The committee has continued to provide items of equipment needed in the 
beginning of mission developments such as hymnals, chairs, typewriter, duplicator, 
funds for printing, etc, at a cost of approximately $800 per congregation. 

SPECIAL GIFTS 

Holy Trinity Church, Hickory, made available $2,500 for special gifts to 
mission congregations. 

The Executive Board has agreed to make a special gift to each mission 
congregation entering into a building program for a first unit structure in 1966 
in the amount of $5,000 from the Michael Peeler Fund income. Each such gift 
will be a part of the church building program approved by the Bocrd of American 
Missions and the synodical missions committee. 

The Home Missions Foundation continues to provide first mortgage loans for 
mission congregations at low interest rates. Such loans prove to be a blessing 
to congregations that receive them in the reduction of financing costs for their 
church structures. 

The committee encouraged the attendance of several pastors at the Town 
and Country Conference sponsored by the North Carolina Council of Churches 
and North Carolina State University, Raleigh, last May and will do the same 
for a similar program April 25-26, 1966. 

The committee nominated the Rev. William Wood to attend the Town and 
Country Conference at Michigan State University in June, 1965. 

The committee nominated and assisted Rev. Ronald Weinelt and the Rev. 
Carroll Wessinger to attend the Appalachian Conference on Leisure and Recrea- 
tion sponsored by the National Council of the Churches of Christ as Morgantown, 
West Virginia, in November, 1965. 

The Rev. Claude Deal, Jr., attended the School for Urban Pastors sponsored 
by the Board of American Missions at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as a nominee 
of our committee May 24-31, 1965. 

A school for Mission Pastors will be held under the Board of American 
Missions auspices at Lenoir Rhyne College, July 11-15, 1966.

GEORGE R, WHITTECAR, Chairman 
JOHN D. MAUNEY, JR., Secretary 

The Rev. John D. Mauney, Jr., member and secretary of the committee, pre- 
sented the report, and paid tribute to the mission pastors and co-workers who 
are serving as evangelists in mission fields. 

The following corrections were made updating the report as follows: 

(1) The transfer of material concerning the Laurinburg field from "Fields 
Entered" to "Congregations Organized", namely, The Lutheran Church of the 
Living Word." 

(2) The section "New Fields to be Entered" was amended by striking the 
last sentence in paragraph one, "If such calls are accepted, these fields can 
be entered soon," and substituting a new sentence, "Calls have been accepted 
by Seminarian Floyd Eugene Sides to develop the Research Triangle Area, and the 
Rev. G. Dwight Conrad, long time pastor of Bethany, Hickory, to develop the 
East Gastonia area." 

(3) Under section "Special Gifts" an amendment was made deleting the 
words in second line of paragraph one, "of low interest rate. Such loans prove 
to be a blessing", and putting a period after the words "mission congregations." 

(4) Under "Fields Entered", the name of mission developer Paul M. Soren- 
sen was corrected, and also the name of the transfering synod was changed from 
Nebraska Synod to the Upper Michigan-Wisconsin Synod. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 209 



Following these corrections, Secretary Mauney touched the highlights of 
the report, recognizing the special gifts through congregations and the Home 
Mission Foundation to the mission progrcm of the synod, and said by way of ex- 
planation that a slightly reduced budget does not reflect curtailment of the 
synod's mission program but favorable results in the synod's sustentation pro- 
gram. 

In connection with the report, Secretary Mauney presented the regional sec- 
retary of the Board of American Missions, the Rev. David F. Johnson, for further 
remarks concerning the mission program of the board, synod, and the church at 
large. 

Referring to the slogan of the board, "People is our mission", regional sec- 
retary Johnson said that this is the board's primary business. He said that we 
often see signs instead of souls in reports which, of necessity, are factual, but 
which do not include the dynamics behind the report, namely the dedication and 
sacrifices of both pastor and people. 

He spoke of the partnership of board and synod in the ongoing mission pro- 
gram of the church. He outlined the changing trends in North Carolina as fol- 
lows, first, slowdown in immigration, secondly, shifting of population from rural 
to urban centers, and thirdly, the expansion of leisure activities, and said further 
that the board is gearing its program in ministering to people where they are and 
in meeting the changing trends of the day. 

He socke of other missionary opportunities by presenting certain statistics 
that by 1980 between one-third and one-half of the American families would 
have two homes, and that 8 % of the counties of Appalachia are in North Caro- 
lina. 

On motion of Secretary Mauney, the report of the committee was adopted. 

Report of Committee on Parish Education 

With this report your chairman is making his last one to the synod, having 
resigned as chcirman on Januory 14. It has been a wonderful and rewarding 
experience to be privileged to serve my church and synod in this capacity for 
so long a period. I am grateful to the synod and my fellow ministers for their 
fine cooperation as well as their patience and kindness. 

With this report I relinquish my duties to my good friend and fellow work- 
er, the Rev. Robert !_. Troutman. He knows the work and is most capable to 
lead the committee and its program to new and greater heights. 

The year 1965 has been another busy one for your committee and your sec- 
retary of Christian Education. With the continued projection of the New Cur- 
riculum and solving problems connected with it the committee has been busy. 

As we look back on the first year v/ith our new materials we have much 
for which to be thankful. These materials have proved to be educationally 
sound and we believe they are opening a new era in Christian Education for our 
church and our people. Some churches still have some problems to work out but 
we are sure they will. 

Workshops, Institutes, Coaching Conferences, Laboratory Schools, and Lead- 
ership programs, continue to take up most of the work of the committee. Plan- 
ning, getting leaders from throughout the synod is no small task. We are now 
working on a plan to build up a list of teachers and leaders in the synod who 
would like to serve their church in such capacities. 

In 1966 we will have coaching conferences for the last of our materials. 
This will involve teachers of Kindergarten, Grades One and Two, Supervisors and 
Administrators. Plan to have your leaders and teachers attend one of these 
which will be announced later. Select your teachers for these divisions early 
and order material early so that they will have them for the conference in your 
area. 



210 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



The Laboratory School at Lutheridge last summer proved to be very suc- 
cessful. We now have a number of demonstration teachers in our synod who 
have been trained to help you with leadership development. Contact your new 
chairman or the synodical secretary of Christian Education for information on 
how to use these people in your work. There will be other Laboratory Schools 
held at Lutheridge in 1966, so plan to send some of your teachers and leaders. 

The VCS Institutes and Workshops continue to be effective in our synod. 
The congregations have supported this work and attendance has always been 
excellent. Plans have been made for the 1966 workshops so we ask you to plan 
early to get your leaders and teachers to attend the workshops in your district. 
These will be announced later. 

We again urge all congregations to continue their leadership programs. 
Continue to offer courses for your present teachers and also new and prospective 
teachers. This is vital to a good parish education program in your congregation. 

Promote Lutheridge early in the year. You have the 1966 program in which 
you see that a fine program has again been planned for every member of the 
family. Urge your people to take advantage of Lutheridge and send applications 
in early. 

Let me say for the last time in this capacity that the synodical program of 
parish education is vital in the life of the church. Your committee endeavors 
to keep abreast with all new materials and methods of Christian Education. It is 
the purpose of the committee to bring more efficiency into the program of our 
synod and all of its congregations. The chairman, the district members on the 
operational committee, and the secretary of Christian Education are eager to 
help you with your program. Call upon them. 

We recommend that the Rev. Brady Y. Faggart, Jr., Secretary of Christian 
Education, be heard in connection with this report. 

L. C. BUMGARNER, Chairman 

MRS. BACHMAN S. BROWN, JR., Sec. 

The committee's new chairman, the Rev. Robert L. Troutman, presented 
the report, and recognized new members on the committee. He described the 
synodical program as being tailored to congregational and district needs, and 
reported the last series of coaching conferences scheduled for May. He solicited 
for the committee a knowledge of synod's needs and the names of capable per- 
sonnel for workshops and laboratory schools. 

The Rev. Brady Faggart, Jr., secretary of Christian Education, was recogniz- 
ed in connection with the report. He accented the fact that the determining 
factor in the choice and use of materials is the direction in which a congrega- 
tion is moving. It is necessary, he said, to know what Christian education is, 
and what is to be accomplished. He reported that for the second year laboratory 
schools had been planned for the training of dedicated leadership. 

Resolution of Appreciation 

Chairman Troutman presented a resolution of appreciation to the former 
chairman of the committee, the Rev. L. C. Bumgarner, upon his resignation from 
the committee and in recognition of his twenty one years of service to the com- 
mittee. The resolution reads as follows: 

"On January 14, 1966, the Reverend Lethco C. Bumgarner resigned 
from the Committee on Parish Education. By this action he terminated 
twenty-one years of continuous service to the synod on that committee 
as a member and its chairmon. During that time his genuine interest 
in the cause of Christian education, his creative leadership, and his 
faithful labors have guided one of the most important committees of 
synod to function effectively in planning, implementing, and cultivat- 
ing a total program of Christian education in the congregations of 
the synod. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 21 I 

THEREFORE, be it resolved that the North Carolina Synod of the 
Lutheran Church in America express its appreciation and esteem to 
Pastor Bumgarner for his contribution to the life of the church and 
the synod through his service as a member and chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Parish Education; and that this convention of synod recognize 
and acknowledge Pastor Bumgarner's extended and valued service by 
adopting this resoultion by a standing vote." 

On motion of Pastor Walter Yount, the resolution was so adopted. 
On motion of Chairman Troutman, the report of the committee was adopted. 

Report of the Committee on Evangelism 

BSE;'-- 

Evangelism activities during the past year have been built around the 
current LCA Evangelism theme, "Frontiers for Witness", with particular em- 
phasis on the Missionary Nature and Structure of the Congregation Study. Area 
Missions, Overnight Retreats for Pastors, LCA Conferences, District meetings have 
all accented the overall theme. 

The committee's report to the 1 966 Convention of Synod is presented under 
the following headings: 

1. PROGRAM 

A. Study Opportunities for Committeemen, Pastors, and Congregational Chairmen 

1. Sept. 28-29, 30 — Oct. 1, Oct. 19-20, and 21-22: — A series of four 
overnight MNSC retreats were held for pastors featuring lectures by the 
Rev. James R. Stephenson on the topics, "The World — God's Creation," 
"The World — Ae We Know and Experience It," "The World — Place of 
Witness." 80% of the parish pastors in the Synod attended the re- 
treats. Their reaction was, "The retreats were the best meetings 
pastors have had the opportunity to attend ... A good investment 
of time and money." The purpose of the retreats was, "to help pastors 
conduct MNSC studies in their own congregations." Tapes and manu- 
scripts of the three lectures have been made available for use by con- 
gregational study groups. 

2. January 17-19, 1966 — Seven members of the Operational Committee 
on Evangelism attended the LCA Evangelism Conference at the Sherman 
House in Chicago. The conference theme was "Lively Congregations 
in God's Changing World." 

3. January and February 1966 — District Evangelism leaders met with 
congregational chairmen at the six district meetings to discuss "Fron- 
tiers for Witness — Handbook for Lay Leaders." Also, the congrega- 
tional chairmen were given a listing of procedures for implementing 
MNSC on the congregational level. 

4. November 15-16, 1965 — The Evangelism Committee, in cooperation 
with other operational committees and the auxiliaries, conducted the 
1 1th Annual Workshop for New Pastors and their Wives. 

B. Area Missions 

1. The "Witness Where You Are Area Evangelism Mission" was con- 
ducted in the Central and Southern Districts of the synod in the fall 
of 1965. The Central District dates were September 29 - October 3, 
and the Southern District dates October 20-24. 

2. Some of the evaluations given by pastors and laymen are as follow: 
"This was by far the best mission we have ever experienced ... A 
great help toward developing year round evangelism . . . dialogue 
with the missioner was a real learning situation ... we have already 
decided to follow this same patern in our individual mission next fall 
. . . this is the best idea in evangelism that we have used in all the 
years I've been in the synod . . . this new pattern mission is something 
the church has needed for a long time." 



212 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



3. The Area Missions were a financial success with a balance of $619.60, 
which was contributed to the Evangelism Surplus for use in underwrit- 
ing future Evangelism Missions and ventures in the synod. 

4. The Southwestern and Eastern Districts will have area missions in 
1966. September 28 - October 2 are the Southwestern District dates 
and October 26-30 are the Eastern District dates. When these mis- 
sions are completed the new patern mission will have been conducted 
in every district of the synod. 

81 PROGRESS 

The Parochial Reports 

1 . Reports from the congregations on membership rolls indicate a 458 
or 1.03% gain in active confirmed members and a 443 or 1.09% 
gain in communing members. 

2. While congregations gained 187 by adult baptism, 1130 by confirma- 
tion, 1879 by letter of tranfer, 152 by restoration, for total accessions 

of 3348, losses of 2848 reduced the net gain in confirmed members

The Annua! Evongeiism Peogress Report requested of the pastors in connec- 
tion with the report to the President of Synod has been returned by 164 
pastors. The following interesting facts are noted: 

Reporting on Congregational "Missionary Nature and Structure of the Con- 
gregational Study": 67 congregations plan a joint meeting of the council 
and evangelism committee to discuss MNSC. 42 plan to use the skit, 
"Where In The World is Your Congregation?" 24 expect to appoint a 
"task force" for MNSC study. 29 will use "Discovery for Mission Ques- 
tions;" 37 will use manuscripts and recordings of Pastor Stephenson's three 
lectures; 34 hope to involve the entire congregation in MNSC through 
-"Discovery for Mission" small study groups; 81 reported no definite plans 
to date. 

Fifty-seven churches are using the small discussion group idea on a year 
round basis. 

In addition to the 69 congregations participating in area missions, 21 
reported an individual evangelism mission. 

Concerning the Responsibility List: 117 congregations maintain an up-to- 
date list of names and addresses, totaling 10,515. Of this number 4,041 
are inactive members. The 164 congregations have 1579 people on their 
evangelism visitation teams for an average of 10 persons on 5 teams per 
congregation. These 1579 people made 6,562 visits during 1965 for an 
average of 8 visits a year per team. 22 churches send out visitation teams 
once a month, 14 once a quarter, 1 1 weekly, 72 at special seasons, and 27 
follow other schedules. 

Evangelism Committees in the 164 churches met 728 times during 1965 
for an average of 5 meetings a year per congregation. 26 of the 164 
churches sent to the synod's contact and referral service a list of inactive 
non-resident members and 1 1 9 promised to send names of non-residents who 
become inactive during 1966. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 213 



Overnight retreats for pastors were rated excellent by 69 postors, good by 
52, and poor by 1. Only two thought they should be discontinued. 
The area mission three year cycle plan was rated excellent by 39 pastors, 
good by 84, poor by 5. Only 4 said "discontinue". 

The monthly Stewardship Evangelism Bulletin was rated excellent by 56 
pastors, good by 66, poor by 4. Only 3 said, "discontinue". 

98 congregations are making use of audio visual aids in the evangelism pro- 
gram. 

C. A complete "Contact and Referral Service" has been set up for the N. C. 

Synod. 

1 . Information on "moving Lutherans" is received from the following 
sources: 

a. The Lutheran 

b. The N. C. Lutheran 

c. Parish Pastors reporting their inactive non-resident members. 

d. LCA contact and Referral Service 

e. Other LCA Synods 

2. Information on "moving Lutherans' is sent on to the nearest pastor as 
soon as it is received at the Church House. 

HI. PLANS FOR 1966-67 

A. "Stewardship, Evangelism, Social Ministry School" is scheduled for Lenoir 
Rhyne College July 29-30, 1966. 

1. The Evangelism Section of the School will be conducted by the Rev. 
James R. Stephenson. 

2. The Evangelism chairman of each congregation's Evangelism Commit- 
tee, or his representative is invited to attend. 

3. Expenses for lodging and meals for the School will be paid by the 
three Operational Committees. 

B. Another joint thrust in Evangelism is being planned for the North and 
South Carolina Synods in 1967. 

1. Purpose of the 1967 Conference: "To define and stimulate the witness 
and worship of the congregation required in God's Changing World." 

2. Theme: "The Church's Witness to this Present Age". 

3. Dates and place for the 1967 Conference have not yet been selected. 

4. The Church's Witness to this Present Age will probably be developed 
under three sub-divisions: 

a. In the midst of an industrialized society. 

b. In the midst of increasing leisure time. 

c. In the midst of youth. 

C. "Congregational Program Consultations" in connection with District Meet- 
ings, Workshop for New Pastors and their Wives, and Overnight Retreats for 
pastors will continue to be conducted by the Evangelism Committee in 
1966-67. 

D. A new pattern area mission is being projected for use in the synod in 1967- 
68-69. 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

1. That congregations needing assistance with evangelism programs and plans 
request this help from the Operational Committee on Evangelism. The 
commitee desires to make its resources available to every congregation in 
the Synod. 

2. That all congregations in the Southwestern and Eastern Districts, if at all 
possible, arrange their schedules so as to participate in the "Witness Where 
You Are Area Evangelism Mission." 



214 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



3. That congregational evangelism committees schedule some of the many fine 
fiimstrips and tape recordings on evangelism available from the Synod Film 
Library, for congregational use. 

4. That each congregation's evangelism commitee meet with the church council 
to discuss the possibility of the appointment of a "task force' to begin the 
MNSC study. 

5. That each congregation have its evangelism chairman or his representative 
in attendance at the Stewardship, Evangelism, Social Ministry School at 
Lenoir Rhyne College July 29-30.

Report of Stewardship Committee 

The Operational Committee on Stewardship is endeavoring through its ac- 
tivities to make the current LCA Stewardship theme "Set the Work Forward", 
a reality on congregational, district and synod levels. To this end the following 
program has been developed, progress made, and plans projected. 

I. PROGRAM 

A. 1966 District Meeting Workshops: The new "HANDBOOK" for the Con- 
gregation's Committee on Stewardship produced by the LCA Commission on 

Stewardship was introduced to congregational stewardship chairmen at the 
district meetings held in January and February. Each chairman was provided 
with a copy of the "HANDBOOK" and urged to make use of it with his 
committee in an effort to plan year-round stewardship. 

B. Monthly Bulletin: To keep congregational leaders informed, a Stewardship- 

Evangelism Bulletin was mailed each month during 1965 to seven persons in 
each congregation. 

C. Workshop for New Pastors and Their Wives: The Committee, along with 

other Operational Committees and the Auxiliaries, sponsored the Synod's 1 1th 
annual two day workshop for new pastors and their wives November 15 and 
16, 1965. 

D. Materials: "How $100 of apportionment is spent" was a popular informa- 
tion sheet prepared for general congregational distribution during 1965. The 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERIC A 2JI5 

1966 Apportionment Report Card showing the congregation's apportionment 
giving record since 1960 was distributed as a Bulletin Board item. 

E. E.M.V. Workshops: During July and August 710 councilmen, stewardship 
committeemen, and pastors attended six district workshops designed to help 
congregations strenghten their year-round stewardship program. The new 

"STEWARDSHIP DEVELOPMENT KIT" was demonstrated at these work- 
shops. The workshop programs were presented by the Assistant to the 
President. 

F. Consultations: In connection with the Fall District Meetings, the congre- 

gations were divided into three categories according to percentage of ap- 
portionment given. The three groups were presided over by the President 
of Synod, the Assistant to the President, and the District Clerical Represen- 
tative for Stewardship. These meetings proved most helpful in "taking 
each congregation where it was" and urging a maximum effort to do its best 
in the 1965 apportionment response. 

II. PROGRESS 
A. Congregational Level 

1. In 1965 congregations of the N. C. Synod gave 8.7% more than in 
1964 for current expenses; 4.2% more for apportioned benevolence; 
but 49.3% less for other benevolences and 13.87% less for total 
benevolences. The minuses continue with .4% less for other expenses 
and .07% less for total expenditures. In 1965 the per capita per 
communing member reached an all-time high at $65.95 for current 
expenses. The per capita per communing member for total expendi- 
tures was $129.49 in 1965, $131.89 in 1964, $141.76 in 1963, and 
$138.68 in 1962. N. C. Lutherans provided $12.27 less per communing 
member last year than in the peak of 1963. Less was asked of N. C. 
Lutherans last year for building programs and synod wide capital funds 
appeals. 

2. With Synod's 200 congregations providing total expenditures for all 
causes of $5,296,273 in 1965, 50.93% of that amount went for 
current expenses, 26.09% for other expenses, and 22.98% for total 
benevolences. 

3. Congregational Stewardship Progress Reports from 166 churches reveal 
the following interesting facts: 

Stewardship Promotion: Fifty-five congregations conducted a full Every 
Member Visit; 57 had a Budget Pledge Sunday; 41 had a Steward- 
ship Dinner; 13 conducted neighborhood group meetings for Steward- 
ship; 28 used other ideas. 

Stewardship Practices: One hundred and thirty congregations use 
single packet offering envelopes; 41 Duplex; in 119 unconfirmed chil- 
dren use offering envelopes; in 105 congregations members make a 
single pledge to include current expenses and benevolences; 127 con- 
gregations encourage their members to make a pledge in dollars and 
cents for a weekly offering; only 20 do not ask for dollar and 
cent pledges; 149 congregations instruct the treasurer to make monthly 
remittances for apDOrtionment; 16 congregations report a problem with 
commercialism, 136 have no such problem; 49 church councils have 
a Stewardship Studv Course; 122 promote Christian Tithing. The 166 
churches report 1,605 tithers. 

Year Round Activities: One hundred and thirty-six churches use materials 
from the Year Round Stewardship Packet; 131 believe the new "Handbook" 
will be of help to the committee; 124 follow the LCA Calendar of Emphasis; 
130 send out financial statements, 3 monthly, 127 quarterly; 89 compare 
offerings with budget needs in Sunday Bulletin; 106 use items from the 
Stewardship Development Kit; 105 ordered and used LLM's EMR materials 
last year. 

Achievement: Twenty-four congregations had offerings amounting to over 
100% of their budget in 1965; 33 reached their budgets 100%, 2-93%, 
13-95%, 30-90%, 1-87%, 15-85%, 2-80%, 14-75%; 20 less than 75%. 
Reporting Apportionment Receipts: One hundred and seven said the monthly 



216 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CA ROL INA SYNOD 

sheet showing apportionment remittances by congregations was helpful. 
Many said it was posted on the bulletin board. Only 6 thought it should 
be discontinued. 
B. Synod Level 

1. Ninteen hundred and sixty-five was the best year yet for apportioned 
benevolences in the N. C. Synod. Receipts from the congregations 
provided $980,015.69, or 92.7 °o of the minimum needs for the LCA, 
the six institutions, and the N. C. Synod. Helping to compile the rec- 
ord, 40 congregations gave SI 5, 100. 14 more than they were appor- 
tioned; 48 gave 100% of their aportionment; and many others gave 
a larger percentage of their apportionments than they did in 1964. 
It was a team effort that made 1965 c record apportionment year. 

2. The North Carolina Synod was in 7th piece in 1965 among the 31 
synods in percentage of LCA apportionment given. South Carolina ied 
with 101%. Others followed in this order: Rocky Mountain 97.31%, 
Illinois 95.81%, Iowa 95.39%, Michigan 95.07%, New Jersey 
94.18%, North Carolina 93%, Texas-Louisiana 90.46^. 

II!. PLANS 

A. Stewardship School: The third triennial Stewardship, Evangelism, Social 
Ministry School will be held at Lenoir Rhyne College July 29-30, 1966. Mr. 
Sam Edwins and Mr. George Innes of the LCA Stewardship Commission will 
conduct the Stewardship Section of the School. Each congregation is urged 
to have its stewardship chairmen or his representative in attendance. Ex- 
penses for meals and lodging will be paid by the synod. 

B. Stewardship Task Force: Growing out of a joint meeting of the StewardshiD 

Committee with the Executive Board and Representatives from the LCA, 
which was for the purpose of studving the effectiveness of our Synod's 
Stewardship Program, a group of 40 pastors and 40 laymen are being 
selected to compose a Stewardship "Task Force" to visit each church council 
this summer. 

1. Briefing sessions will be held May 15, 16, 17, and 18 at Good Shep- 
herd, Goldsboro; Calvary, Concord; Holy Trinity, Hickory; First Church, 
Greensboro. 

2. Purpose of the visits is to discuss apportionment as the "extension of 
the ministry of the congregation throughout the world" and to accent 
the mission and minstry of the church. 

C. New Pastors' Workshop: The Stewardship Committee will coooerate with 
other Operational Committees in conducting the 12th annua! workshop for 
new pastors and their wives in the fall of 1966. 

D. LCA Stewardship Conference: The Stewardship Chairman and Staff Worker 
will cttend the annual LCA Stewardship Conference at Pocono Manor in 
October 1966. 

E. Materials: Promotional Pieces will be provided congregations to help church 

members see how apportionment money is used to proclaim Christ. 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

1. That congregations desiring help with stewardshio problems and plans call on 
the operational committee for counsel and assistance. 

2. That congregations do their best in 1966 apportionment giving to enable the 
LCA, the Institutions, and the Synod to receive 100% of their budget 
amounts. 

3. That each congregation send its stewardship chairman or his representative 
to the Stewardship School at Lenoir Rhyne College July 29-30, 1966. 

4. That each church council coonerate in the Every Council Visitation being 
projected for the Stewardshin Task Force for the Easter to September period 
of 1966 in an effort to SET THE WORK FORWARD. 

5. That every congregation implement in the most effective way, the 1966- 
1967 Wills Emphasis Program promoted by the LCA Foundation, and that 
materials and counsel provided by the Foundation be employed continuously 
to inform and motivate a response from our people.

The report was presented by the committee's chairman, the Rev. J. 
LeGrande Mayer, who introduced the report by saying that everything said and 
done in this convention has been a stewardship report. He accented the steward- 
ship theme, "Set the Work Forward" as he spoke of the range of the com- 
mittee's work, and the wider range of participation in the synod's stewardship 
program. He then presented staff member Ernest Misenheimer for further re- 
marks on the committee's report. 

Dr. Misenheimer highlighted two strategic phases of the stewardship pro- 
gram, namely, the stewardship task force to visit in the interests of extending 
the ministry of the congregation into the far reaches of the world, and the 
stewardship school to be held during the summer at Lenoir Rhyne College. 

The convention recognized the presence of Walter A. Jensen and George 
F. Innes of the LCA stewardship staff. 

On motion of Chairman Mayer, the report, including recommendations, was 
adopted as a whole.

Report of Trustees Michael Peeler Fund 

The Trustees of the Michael Peeler Fund submit this report for the year 
1965. 

On October 11, 1965, the following stocks were received from the Co- 
Executors of the Estate of J. Michael Peeler: 

1440 Shares of American Tel. & Tel. Common Stock 
864 Shares of General Motors Common Stock 
864 Shares of R. J. Reynolds Stock. 
576 Shares of Transco Gas Pipe Line Common Stock. 
864 Shares of West Point-Pepperal Common Stock 
And on November 30, 1965, the Co-Executors turned over to the Trustees 
$28,992.64 cash as the final distribution from the Estate. 

These assets have been incorporated into the fund and are reflected in the 
Audit and Balance Sheet. 

Due to the over-lap of time, the attached Statement of Cash Receipts & 
Disbursements reflects a larger disbursement to the synod than was actually made 
out of the 1965 income. $15,000.00 of the amount shown was from the 1964 
income. $30,000.00 was paid to the synod out of the 1965 income. The re- 
serve for principal losses has been increased to $13,459.15, which is less than 
the full amount permitted under the Regulations adopted by the synod. The 
reserve can be used to keep the sums paid to the synod on an even level in the 
event the income from any one year should not be sufficient for this purpose. 

A certification of the Auditor, a balance sheet and a statement of cash 
receipts and disbursements are submitted herewith as a part of this report.

On motion of Pastor Walter Yount, the report was adopted. 

Report Of Committee On Audit 

Sub-Committee A. — ■ On Audit and Other Financial Records of Synod 

The Committee on Audit as provided by the by-laws of synod was divided 
into three two-member sub-committees. Sub-Committee A, on the audit and other 
financial records of synoa: Messrs. George L. Plott and J. W. McGee, Jr.; Sub- 
Committee B, on the audits of institutions: Messrs. W. A. Kluttz and J. Max 
Henderlite; Sub-Committee C, on audits and financial records of special trust 
funds: Messrs. George W. Gil Ion and Clinton Eudy. 

Each audit and financial record was carefully examined by the proper sub- 
committee. The Committee on Audit in making its reports adopts the findings 
of the sub-committees. 

Sub-Committee A examined the auditor's reports and the balance sheets 
of synod and of the North Carolina Lutheran and find them to be adequate. 

We recommend: 

a. That the said auditors' opinions be approved and printed in the minutes 
of synod. 

b. That the complete reports of the said auditors be placed in the ar- 
chives of synod.

Seventh Meeting 

(Thursday morning. May 5, 1966 - 9:00 A.M. - 2:00 P.M.) 

Devotions were conducted by the convention chaplain, the Rev. R. Douglas 
Fritz. The meditation theme was "Devotions on Hard Pews". Chaplain Fritz 
pointed out the symbolism of hard pews with the restlessness which the gospel 
produces in urging us on to higher things. Pews are not meant, he said, to take 
refuge from the realities of life, but are for renewal and encounter with the 
gospel. "Come" and "go" he said, are verbs and voices of invitation and com- 
mission. In his final meditation, he challenged convention delegates to rise from 
sitting by evaluating the synodical program and translating it into action. 

Reference and Counsel — Committee chairman Marion Starr reported that the 
position of the committee has been that items on the adopted agenda have 
priority, and that following unfinished business in the morning schedule, the 
committee will offer motions and items that have been presented to it. 

The report was adopted. 

Minures and Unfinished Business — Committee Chairman Karl U. Dunn re- 
ported that approximately 425 copies of the minutes of the second meeting, held 
Tuesday afternoon, May 3, and the third meeting, held Tuesday evening at 
Lenoir Rhyne College, had been printed and distributed to the convention dele- 
gates. He also reported that a few typographical errors had been reported to 
the secretary for correction. 

Minutes of the second and third meetings were approved as corrected. 

Report of Representatives To North Carolina 
Council of Churches Assembly 

Delegates to the annual Assembly of the North Carolina Council of Churches 
were appointed by the President with the approval of the Executive Board. This 
synod is allowed 21 such representatives. During 1965 there were four Lutherans 
on the Executive Board, Miss Mary Stamy, Winston-Salem, secretary; the Rev. 
Albert H. Keck, Jr., DD., Hickory, the Rev. Robert N. Peery, Newton, and Presi- 
dent Whittecar, immediate past president of the Council. Others were appointed 
f o various posts. 

The main business session of the Assembly at Raleigh January 26 was can- 
celled by reason of a heavy snow storm and the business was referred to the 
Executive Board. Following is a brief summary of the matters reported to the 
Assembly and the Executive Beard by the officers and committees of the Coun- 



222 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORT H CARO LI NA SYNOD 

Migrant Workers Project — Inasmuch as the Council was the only respon- 
sible agency in North Carolina directly serving the needs of the thousands of 
migrant workers in the state, it became, by authority of the action of the 1965 
Assembly, the contracting agency to set up a program in cooperation with the 
office of Economic Opportunity. A federal grant of $270,444 for programs in 
housing, sanitation, day care for children, and education was secured. The Rev. 
Charles L. Herron became director. One hundred sixty-three persons were em- 
ployed through the harvest season as teachers, day care attendants, sanitarians 
and home makers. The Council is taking steps to see that a separate organiza- 
tion is created to which it can turn responsibility for continuation of this pro- 
gram. 

The enlargement of this program to include migrant workers in counties 
not previously served by the Council made it necessary that the regular program 
of chaplaincy service to migrant workers be enlarged. 

Under the heading of Christain education the Council has provided service 
and helped coordinate efforts of various church bodies in field of audio-visual 
aids, camping, college work, family life education, scouting, weekday religious 
education, and youth work. 

Under Christain social action, conferences were held on state and federal 
legislation and alcoholism; also a "State-wide Churchmen's Conference on Civil 
Rights", and a "United Nations-Washington Study Tour." The Rev. Jack 
Crum, director of social action, is available to assist in conducting study groups, 
seminars, and conferences, in areas of social concern. 

In the field of Christian social ministry, the Council sponsors chaplaincies 
in state and national parks in the state, makes arrangements for chaplaincies in 
state institutions and gives support to those that have been established, conducts 
the ministry to migrant workers referred to above, and promotes ingatherings of 
clothing and food for overseas relief through Church World Service. 

In addition to the annual assembly, the Council arranges a one-day confer- 
ence for ministers of the churches in the state. 

The Town and Country Church committee of the Commission on inter- 
church cooperation conducted a conference on the Town and County church 
in cooperation with North Carolina State University at Raleigh, May 10 and 11. 

The Public Relations committee was instrumental in initiating a 15-minute 
weekly television program entitled "News of the Church" with state-wide cover- 
age. 

The United Church Women of North Carolina, the women's department of 
the Council, serves to bring church women together for the World Day of Pray- 
er, World Community Day and World Fellowship Day. 

The Council is directed by the Rev. Samuel S. Wiley, D.D., along with Rev. 
Jack Crum, social action director. The Right Rev. George Henry, Bishop of the 
Western North Carolina Diocese of the Episcopal Church, is president. 

The Council operated its program in 1965 on $45,601.25, although its 
budget called for $55,581. It has been agreed n the Council Executive Board 
that a budget of $60,000 a year is necessary if the program and work that the 
churches have asked the council to do are to be carried-out. 

A new financing plan is being initiated and should be in operation fully in 
1967. This is known as the "Proportionate Percentage Plan." It apportions 
each denomination a share of that part of the annual budget to be contributed 
by the member bodies that its expenditures for current expenses and benevolences 
(exclusive of building funds) bears to the total such expenditures by all member 
bodies. 

The amount asked of this synod on this basis for 1967 is $2,700. 

The member communions that comprise the North Carolina Council of 
Churches are:

ALBERT H. KECK, JR. 
for the Synod's Delegation 

The Rev. Albert H. Keck, Jr., D.D., a member of the Council's executive 
board, reported in behalf of the representatives to the annual assembly of the 
North Carolina Council of Churches. He announced that due to the can- 
cellation of the business session due to the unusually heavy snow in January 
the date of meeting had been changed to April, the time of meeting to be 
designated each year. 

Dr. Keck then presented the Council's executive director, the Rev. Samuel 
S. Wiley, D.D., who brought greetings from the N. C. Council and thanked 
the synod for being the first to rise to meet the challenge of an increased 
apportionment to the Council. Dr. Wiley welcomed opportunities to answer ques- 
tions concerning the Council's work. 

Reference was made to the leadership of the immediate past president, Dr. 
George R. Whittecar. 

On motion of Dr. Keck, the report was adopted. 

Report of Committee on Church 
Music and Worship 

This committee has had an interesting, exciting, and challenging year. We 
have been given the opportunity to be of service to a large number of churches 
and individuals in the synod. 

The committee met twice during the year at the Synod House in Salisbury. 
President Whittecar met with us and shared helpful information with the com- 



224 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



mittee and advised us of several opportunities for service to the synod. 

Of special interest of our churches is the second session of the Church 
Music Institute to be held at Lutheridge, July 10-16, 1966. This institute is 
sponsored jointly by the Commissions on Worship of the American Lutheran 
Church, Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, and the Lutheran Church in America. 
Nine such conferences will be sponsored by the LCA. 

Total combined attendance at the 1965 LCA institute exceeded 1,090. This 
is an impressive beginning for a program which is certain to contribute many 
good things toward the upgrading of the standards of music and worship in the 
Lutheran Church for years to come. 

The largest LCA institute was held at Muhlenberg College, Allentown, Penn., 
with 162 in attendance. The second largest was the institute in our own area 
with 1 1 9 enrolled. 

Adequate information has been forwarded to each pastor of the synod by 
the chairman of the committee. 

The LCA Commission on Worship has appointed the Rev. T. C. Plexico to 
serve as the Dean of the 1966 Institute. He has asked Mr. Raymond Hollifield, 
former organist-choirmaster at Saint Luke's Church, Charlotte, and now a student 
at our Southern Seminary, to serve as his assistant. 

It should be noted that the Junior Choir School will be simultaneously with 
the institute. Youth can attend this camp in addition to their regular stay at 
Lutheridge. The school will continue under the capable leadership of Gordon 
Beaver, M.S.M., of Columbia, S. C. 

The committee conducted two courses for area schools during the year. 
The course on the meaning of Lutheran Worship and Music was given at the 
Lay School of Theology in the Landis - China Grove area and at the Leader- 
ship Training School for the Kannapolis area. The four lectures were Pastors 
T. C. Plexico, C. Edgar Lindler, and David P. Nelson, and Professor Harry Wells 
from the faculty of Lenoir Rhyne College. 

Consideration is being given to other areas where such courses can be 
offered. Pastors who are interested should contact the committee chairman. 

The committee is studying the possible design for a pectoral cross for the 
President of the N. C. Synod. Many of the synods have already made this 
provision for its chief pastor. It is hoped that a recommendation on the matter 
can be presented as an addendum to this report. 

The chairman has been in contact with a number of churches in regard to 
the purchase of pipe organs. This has been in the form of meetings with com- 
mittees and pastors and by correspondence. 

The Worship Corner is published regularly in the pages of the N. C. Luther- 
an. Your chairman is encouraged with the response of readers throughout the 
synod. Members and pastors are urged to use this to bring to the attention of 
others matters which may seem to be of importance only to them. It is not sur- 
prising that problems in v/orship and music are pretty much the same every- 
where. 

Your chairman attended the meeting of Worship Committee chairmen from 
throughout the LCA held at Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in November under the 
auspices of the Commission on Worship. The presentations and discussions were 
extremely helpful. The lectures by one of the leading Roman Catholic liturgical 
scholars were stimulating and heart-warming. 

As always, we encourage congregations to subscribe to the Journal of Church 

Music for the organists and choir directors. Membership for these people in the 
Lutheran Society for Worship, Music, and the Arts is a splendid investment of 
money by a congregation or individual. The $7.00 per year membership includes 
a subscription to one of the most beautiful and stimulating magazines published 
in America today, Response.

The report was presented by the Rev. T. C. Plexico, chairman of the com- 
mittee. Chairman Plexico called attention to the Institute to be held at Lu- 
theridge and listed the faculty for the school. He commended the school to 
pastors and music directors. He informed convention delegates that the com- 
mittee has under consideration a pectoral cross for the office of the president 
of synod, and that the final design and purchase would be left to the discretion 
of the Executive Board. He reported considerable work on building a basic 
music library and the compilation of a bibliography of materials relating to church 
music. In closing the report, he said that the committee desires to be of the ut- 
most service to the synod, and all the more, since the chief task of the com- 
mittee is to praise God. 

Upon request, the last paragraph concerning Questionnaire was deleted. 

In connection with the report, Pastor Walter Yount made the following 
motion: 

That the Committee on Music and Worship take into consideration the 
length of the communion service at the opening of synodical conventions and 
discuss with the officers of synod means by which the service may be kept within 
a reasonable length of time. 

The motion prevailed. 

The report of the committee was adopted. 

Report of the Camp Committee 

The committee is indeed happy to report to the synod that we have made 
considerable progress in our thinking during the year 1965. Up until the time 
that the synod gives us an indication that it intends for us to perform specific 
acts our commission is just that: to think, to re-think, to evaluate, to study, 
and to recommend. We met seven times during the year, and at each meeting 
moved a little further into an understanding of our work, and a little closer 
to the development of specific recommendations. The following is a list of 
thoughts that reflect the study and opinions of the committee. Plecse note they 
are not recommendations. 

1. We believe that the synod is in need of developing a church camping 
program of its own on a campsite owned and operated by the synod. 

2. While the fundamental goal is church camping for the continuing 
Christian education of our youth, the camp-site and the program ought to include 
and coordinate a year round retreat and conference facility capable of serving our 
congregations, districts, auxiliaries, and other church organizations. 

3. We believe that the best possible location for a camp-site and conference 
center to be generally in the area of Sanford, North Carolina, and that it should 
have a bare minimum of 200 acres. 

4. Along with our committee, and the guidance of the special sub-commit- 
tee of Executive Board members, and the help of the Board of Parish Education, 
we will need local professional help in camp-site selection and planning. 

5. In the light of increasing demands upon land in North Carolina for 
expanding urban, industrial, conservation, and recreational needs it is important 
that we enter this field of a camp program for the synod in the proximate future. 

6. In the light of increasing need for conference and retreat facilities in 
the synod we feel that we ought to give continued consideration for the develop- 
ment of additional centers other than that which would be on the initial camp- 
site. 

Much more thought and study is demanded of us. But we believe we are 
at a point now where we can begin and carry through these ideas in the 
development of a concrete camp and conference program along these 
lines should the synod authorize us to do so. Such authorization would naturally 
entail adequate provision of funds to secure property, develop the facilities, in- 
augurate and then continue a camping and conference program.

226 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



The Rev. Ronald H. Weinelt, chairman of the committee, introduced the 
report by referring to the living demonstration of the camping scene which 
had been erected on the lawn of Bethany Church and the interesting reactions 
of convention delegates and visitors which the scene had invited. He expressed 
the committee's gratitude to the synod for its support, and also to the Luther 
League for its visible witness to the camping program in the form of a gift prev- 
iously presented to the synod in connection with the report of the Luther League 
by David Misenheimer, president. 

Chairman Weinelt reported that the committee had been working con- 
sistently for three years to develop a practical program of camping expressing 
the objective of Christian Education, and expressed the hope that the committee 
might be able to give a clear perspective and picture of what will be involved in 
the camping program by the next convention of synod. 

Pastor K. Y. Huddle referred to a piece of property in the Morehead City 
area which he understood was offered to the synod some years back. In reply, 
Dr. F. L. Conrad said that there were certain conditions in conveying the 
property to synod, and suggested further investigation of the matter. 

The report of the committee was adopted. 

Report Of The Youth Committee 

The Youth Committee operated during the past year with the following sub- 
committees: 

Youth Rally-Banquet - Ruth Whittecar, Rev. Phillip Deese, Phil Yount 
Advisor Training - Rev. Terry Agner, Mrs. O. L. Casey 

Communication with Congregations - Rev. George Keck, Rev. Phillip Deese 
Since the 1965 convention of Synod the committee has soonsored the 
Synod-wide Youth Rally Banquet at Lenoir Rhyne College, at which more than 
800 youth were present. 

— made travel arrangements for the North Carolina youth attending the 

Miami Youth Conference and provided travel chaperones 
— served as advisor to the North Carolina Luther League Unit 
— provided adult counselors to the twelve sub-districts of the NCLLU 
— continued where possible the on-going year-round guidance to con- 
gregational Luther League advisors 
— made a study which resulted in recommendations to the Executive Board 
for the series of three "President's Conferences on Youth Ministry" 
— made recommendations to the NCLLU'S sub-committee on Leadership 
Schools with regard to personnel and format resulting in a greatly- 
changed format and names - — ■ Youth Ministry Institute (formerly 
League Leadership School) and Youth Ministry Seminar (formerly Lea- 
gue Leadership Seminar) 
— provided travel for adult to attend the convention of the Luther League 

— LCA which met in Miami prior to Youth Conference 
— provided half of cost for adult attending Youth Counseling Seminar 
The work of this committee, and of Synod Youth Secretary Pastor Brady 
Faggart, that is immediately apparent and fresh in the minds of pastors, youth 
and congregational Youth leaders is the "President's Conference on Youth Min- 
istry", held in Winston-Salem, Goldsboro and Lutheridge, April 15-16, 22-23 and 
29-30 respectively. The objectives of these conferences were as follows: 

1. to expose pastors, youth and congregational advisors with the emerging 
concept of "Youth Ministry" and 

2. to give opportunity for the LCA Youth Ministry Staff to engage in 
dialogue with youth and leaders on the congregational level. 

Both objectives were attained with a high degree of success the committee 
feels, with more than four hundred persons engaging in the discussion of the three 
conferences. Prior to the conference, and in connection with it, the "white pa- 
per" entitled "Clues to Youth Ministry" by the Rev. Larry Nelson, LCA Youth 
Commission Staff Secretary, was distributed to the pastor of every congregation 
for consideration by him and congregational workers with youth. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 227 

Looking ahead, the committee commends the following: 

July 20 — Youth Rally-Banquet, Lenoir Rhyne College 

July 20-23 — NCLLU Convention — Congregational Advisor training avail- 
able with LCA Youth Commission Associate Secretary Clair Hoifjeld conducting 
the sessions. A real opportunity! 

Looking farther ahead, we report that the North Carolina Synod is one of 
twelve in the LCA selected for experimental youth ministry concepts. This will 
mean more direct communication with the Youth Commission Staff inasmuch as 
one of its six staff personnel will be assigned to field duties in an area including 
the North Carolina Synod and surrounding synods. 

Recommendation: We recommend that Pastor Brady Faggart be heard in 
connection with the presentation of this report.

Copies of the report which did not appear in the convention bulletin were 
distributed. Chairman Terry Agner presented the report and commented on the 
youth conferences authorized by the Executive Board as being highly successful. 
He referred to the definitive statement by the Rev. Larry Nelson of the LCA 
Youth Commission staff of the basic philosphy underlying the new approach of 
youth work, and encouraged pastors and leaders of youth to use it as a guideline 
to youth ministry in their congregations. He reiterated the plans and programs 
for youth during the summer with the Youth Ministry Seminar scheduled for 
August 7-13. Dates for the North Carolina Luther League Unit Convention 
were corrected in the report of the NCLLU (Bulletin, P. 125) as July 20-23. 
Reference was also made to the fact that North Carolina has been selected as 
one of the 12 LCA synods for pilot projects in youth ministry. 

Chairman Agner recognized the presence of the Rev. John J. Ziegler, Jr., 
LCA Youth staff member, and presented him as being available for conferences 
with pastors and other interest parties concerning experiments in youth ministry. 

The Rev. Brady Faggart, Jr. was recognized and spoke in connection with the 
committee's report, urging the convention delegates to stop and think of what 
is being done in youth work. He described the planned Youth Ministry Institute 
as a pioneer project to relate youth to the congregation, and the congregation 
more closely to its youth. 

The report of the committee was adopted. 



Report of Committee on World Missions 

The Committee on World Missions has endeavored to present the cause of 
World Missions to the people of the North Carolina Synod. In keeping with the 
Calendar of Causes in January missionary itineraries were arranged in two dis- 
tricts of the synod. Miss Alice Turnbladh was assigned to the Southwestern 
District and Pastor Dean Swenson was assigned to the Northwestern District. 
Arrangements for the respective districts were made by Pastor John Hawn and 
Pastor John Yost. 

Planning for the above schedules was accomplished at the 1965 meeting 
of the committee at the Church House on October 19, 1965. The Secretary for 
Interpretation, Pastor Arthur Bauer, represented the LCA and gave highlights of 
the Board's planning and programing. 

The following missionaries from the synod are serving overseas:

Report of Lutheran World Relief 

1965 THANKSGIVING CLOTHING APPEAL 

Upon the direction of the newly formed Committee on Lutheran World 
Relief, a Thanksgiving clothing appeal was again conducted throughout the 
synod. Eight collecting centers were set up. Carolina Freight Carriers Corpora- 
tion of Cherryville provided for the pickups from the collecting centers and 
transportation to the main warehouse in Easton, Pennsylvania. North Carolina 
congregations of the American Lutheran Church and the Lutheran Church - 
Missouri Synod were invited to share this transportation arrangement as they 
have in past years. The places where congregations could deposit their packaged 
collections of clothing were: the home garage of Mr. C. Burton Starr, Hickory; 
Augsburg Lutheran Church, Winston-Salem; St. John's Lutheran Church, Salis- 
bury; Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Raleigh; St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Wilm- 
ington; Builders Hardware Company, Charlotte; Dixie Lumber Company, Cherry- 
ville and St. Mark's Lutheran Church, Asheville. 

RESULTS — Carolina Freight Carriers transported 35,725 pounds of clothing 
to Easton, Pennsylvania. In terms we can better visualize, that was two large 
trailer loads. 

Thank you, Lutherans in North Carolina, for your continued support of this 
work of love and mercy. A special thank you to all individuals and congre- 
gations who served in collecting center capacities. 

RECOMMENDATION 

Whereas Carolina Freight Carriers Corporation, Cherryville, North Carolina, 
has in the past four years transported, free of charge, nearly seventy-eight and 
one-half tons of clothing from North Carolina to the Lutheran World Relief ware- 
house in Easton, Pennsylvania; 

And whereas Mr. J. L. Boies, Vice President - Claims and Insurance, has 
made arrangements for pickup service and transporation of such clothing with 
his company: 

We recommend that the secretary of synod be instructed to write a letter of 
appreciation to Carolina Freight Carriers Corporation for their services; and that 
a copy of such letter be sent to Mr. J. L. Boies. 

DONALD R. DEAL, Chairman 
Committee on Lutheran World Relief 

The Rev. Donald Deal, chairman of the newly appointed committee on 
Lutheran World Relief, members and duties of which are listed in convention 
bulletin, P. 83, presented the report, and appealed to convention delegates to 
continue their interest in the annual clothing drives. He paid special tribute to 
Carolina Freight Carriers Corporation of Cherryville for services of transporation 
of clothing collected during the Thanksgiving season. He said that there was 
no syncd-wide provision for transporation of clothing during the spring appeal. 

On motion of Chairman Deal, the report, including recommendation, was 
adopted.

230 PROCEED INGS OF TH E NORTH CAR OLINA SYNOD 

Constitutionally, the function of the committee is to advise and assist the 
President of Synod in the discharge of his duties and to confer with him as to 
the needs of the church on the territory of the several districts; to review the 
ministerial roll annually and make appropriate recommendations to the Synod 
regarding those ministers whose status is subject to reconsideration and action 
under the terms of the constitution and by-laws of the church; and to determine 
the dates and programs for the meetings of the districts. 

At each of the meetings, President Whittecar reviewed the ministerial changes 
and submitted a listing of vacant congregations and vice pastors. 

Places and programs, as well as dates for the Fall and Spring district meet- 
ings were approved by the committee, and are reported by the District Deans. 

The committee reviewed the ministerial roll with reference to ministers "await- 
ing a call" in compliance with the rule of the church which reads: 

"Continuance on the ministerial roll of a minister awaiting a call shall be 
reviewed by the Synod at each regular convention up to the permitted limit of 
three years. Extension of one year at a time shall require a majority vote." (See 
LCA By-Laws, Section 11, Item 12.) 

The committee recommends that the following pastors on the roll of the Synod 
be placed in the category of "awaiting a call": 

The Rev. John R. Himes (Student, Duke Divinity School, Durham) 
The Rev. Cline W. Harbinson 

J. WILFORD LYERLY, Secretary 
Secretary Lyerly reported for this committee, and moved the recommenda- 
tion of the committee that the Reverends John R. Himes and Cline W. Harbison 
be continued on the ministerial roll on synod as ministers awaiting a call. 
The recommendation was adopted. 

Report of the Committee on 
Publications and Publicity 

The Committee on Publications and Publicity has completed another year of 
operation in the three areas of assigned responsibility: the North Carolina Lu- 
theran; The Lutheran (and other Lutheran literature); Press, Radio, and Tele- 
vision. These sub-committees offer the following reports: 

NORTH CAROLINA LUTHERAN 

We wish to commend the staff of the North Carolina Lutheran for their work 
during the year: Mr. Jeff Norris, Editor; The Rev. B. D. Castor, Business-Circula- 
tion Manager; and the Rev. Paul Conrad, Assistant Editor. We are most grateful 
to Mrs. B. D. Castor for carrying on the work of Business-Circulation Manager 
during the illness of Pastor Castor. 

To facilitate printing schedules and to slightly lower costs of printing the 
North Carolina Lutheran is now being published semi-monthly (24 copies a 
year) instead of the former bi-weekly schedule (26 copies a year). The 
change from a monthly publication was tried experimentally in 1965 and has been 
continued for 1 966. 

The Business-Circulation Manager reports that the subscription rate will con- 
tinue at 60?; for individual subscriptions and 50?: for congregational subscriptions. 
A subsidy of $4800 from the synod will be sufficient for 1966-67.

Dear Sir: 

We have examined the statement of cash receipts & disbursements of the 
North Carolina Lutheran for the year ended December 31, 1965. Our examina- 
tion of recorded transactions was made in accordance with generally accepted 
auditing standards, and accordingly included such tests of the accounting rec- 
ords and such other auditing procedures as we considered necessary under the 
circumstances. 

In our opinion, the accompanying statement presents fairly the recorded 
cash receipts & disbursements of the Business-Circulation Manager of the North 
Carolina Lutheran Lutheran for the year ended December 31, 1965. 

Respectfully submitted, 
SHERRILL & SMITH

RECOMMENDATIONS: 

1. That Mr. Jeff Norris be nominated for Editor of the North Carolina Lu- 
theran for a term expiring with the 1967 convention of synod. 

2. That the Rev. B. D. Castor be nominated for Business-Circulation Man- 
ager of the North Carolina Lutheran for a term expiring with the 1967 con- 
vention of synod.

PRESS, RADIO AND TELEVISION 

During 1965 the sub-committee on Press, Radio and Television has been 
responsible for news coverage relative to synodical affairs, items of interest have 
been channeled to the news media through the Bureau during the year. Again 
this year we are sponsoring a news room at our Synodical convention. Regular 
news releases and pictures are being sent out over the state. We appreciate 
Mr. Jeff Norris manning the press room for us during these convention days. 
As a part of the work of this sub-committee, we shall again provide pastors and 
lay-representatives with a Convention Summary. The summary will be distributed 
to all pastors and lay delegates immediately following the closing session. Our 
thanks to Pastor Paul L. Conrad for compiling the summary. 

The sub-committee would urge pastors and laymen to visit local radio and 
television stations for the purpose of requesting time for our religious broadcasts 
such as the Protestant Hour, Church World News, Frontiers of Faith. Each pastor 
receives information on such programs from the Department of Press, Radio and 
Television. Often a visit from a local pastor is all that is needed for a station to 
carry such a program.

report of sub-commjttee on 
the lutheran and other publications 

We, your committee on the Lutheran and Other Publications, have functioned 
as opportuity has presented during this past year. We have sent a communica- 
tion to each congregation urging that The Lutheran be placed in the congrega- 
tional budget on the EVERY HOME PLAN at a cost of $1.50 per family, (and 
this need count only the active families of the congregation, although it may in- 
clude all families and prospects as well). The Lutheran has been made available 
to the News Media of synod, as newspapers, Radio and TV., through the News 
Bureau of synod. Information about the various other publications of the church 
has been mailed periodically to pastors as well as seasonal offers of Book Corners 
for their churches. Members of this committee along with synodically designat- 
ed district representatives have made themselves available to assist pastors in 
getting The Lutheran into their parishes, and have served as called upon. Because 
of the large number of subscriptions that now are renewed in the first quarter of 
the year the promotion of The Lutheran has suggested it would be helpful if 
congregations would consider having their renewal date come at other times during 
the year. We, your committee, would commend such action. If the mechanic 
must have both tools and an operational manual to keep your car in first class 
operational condition, how is it that we expect our people to keep the interest 
of the church first in their lives if they are not aware of the changes and the 
needed services they should render? Subscribe for The Lutheran on the Every 
Home Plan and see over the years the difference it will make in your church life. 

K. Y. HUDDLE, Chairman 
ROBERT EHLE 
ROBERT TROUTMAN 

The Rev. Charles W. Easley was recognized as chairman of the committee, 
and introduced the three pronged report. Each of the sub-committee chairman 
was recognized in connection with his section of the report, namely, the Rev. 
Jack L. Davis,, on the North Carolina Lutheran; the Rev. K. Y. Huddle, on 
The Lutheran, and Chairman Easley, on Press, Radio, and Television. 

North Carolina Lutheran 

The Rev. Jack Davis recognized Mr. Jeff Norris, editor, and the Rev. B. D. 
Castor, business-circulation manager, respectively. 

Editor Norris spoke of the merits of a bi-weekly publication, and expressed 
appreciation to the convention for his re-election for another term. 

Business-circulation manager Castor thanked the synod for its prayerful 
support during his extended illness, and expressed gratification upon being able 
to serve again. He urged pastors to keep addresses of subscribers current. 

Mrs. B. D. Castor was recognized for her services in connection with the 
circulation of the North Coralina Lutheran, especially during Pastor Castor's ill- 
ness. 

The Lutheran 

The Rev. K. Y. Huddle referred to the material on The Lutheran included 
in the convention packets. He reported 101 congregations of the synod, or 
51%, as being under the Every Home Plan, 43 congregations, or 22%, as re- 
ceiving individual subscriptions, and 53 congregations, or 27%, as having no rec- 
ord of any subscriptions. 

Press, Radio, Television 

The Rev. Charles Easley recognized the Rev. Paul Conrad as the compiler 
of the Convention Summary, and informed the convention that copies of the 
summary would be mailed to all clerical and lay delegates. He also paid 
tribute to Jeff Norris for his services in releasing convention news. 

On motion of Chairman Easley, the report of the committee as a whole was 
adopted.

The Report of the Committee on Pensions 

The Committee on Pensions has been in consultation with the President 
of Synod during the year, but there was no business that warranted a committee 
meeting. 

Your committee stands ready to serve in any way in which we may be of 
help. 

PAUL E. MOOSE, Chairman 
WALTER N. YOUNT 
CHARLES R. PATTERSON 
W. M. LOCKROW 
J. R. BEAM 
HARRY T. SIFFORD 

The Rev. Paul Moose, chairman, reported for the committee, and informed 
convention delegates that the committee is hopeful that minimum pensions for 
pastors and widows will be raised by action of the LCA Kansas City Convention. 

On motion of Chairman Moose, the report was adopted. 

REPORT CF THE SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON PASTORS' SALARY STUDY 

Copies of the complete report of the study committee consisting of a fourteen 
page document had been distributed earlier in the convention by convention 
action to give delegates time to look at it prior to the presentation of the 
report. 

Mr. Frank A. Jenkins, a member of the committee, and delegate from St. 
Luke, Charlotte, presented the report in behalf of the committee. His full com- 
ments are printed verbatim for the information of the synod, as follows: 

"The most affluent society the world has even known — yet many of our 
parish pastors can qualify for the poverty program. We have let our parish 
pastor down by failing in our stewardship support of him. 

Recognizing the need for a guide in establishing pastors' salaries, this 
synod, at its convention in 1964, directed the establishment of a committee to 
study this question and to prepare a realistic guide for use in the synod. 

The committee was named by President Whittecar, as follows: Paul Ritchie, 
Chairman, the Rev. M. R. Farris, the Rev. Albert H. Keck, Jr., D.D., the Rev. 
Ernest Misenheimer, D.D., and Dr. Whittecar of the staff, Herman Weaver and 
Frank Jenkins. The committee met at intervals, gathered information from 
many sources and attempted to put together information that will serve as a 
useful guide for all of us. Let me assure you that no professional confidence has 
been broken. The committee did have access to pastors' salaries in the synod — 
but not by name. 

In order to maintain a respectable standard of living, pastors are having 
to occupy much of their time in second jobs — moonlighting — to provide the 
necessities of life for their families. Pastors' wives are working as nurses, teach- 
ers and at many other occupations to assist their pastor husbands in providing 
for their family. This puts the pastor in the position of baby sitter, taking his 
time and energy away from his pastoral duties. 

Pastors do a disservice to themselves, their families, their congregations and 
to those pastors that follow them, when they: 

(1) Fail to encourage finance committees to review yearly the pastor's 
compensation. 

(2) Ask that increased compensation be in fringe benefits. 

(3) Refuse to accept an increase in salary. 

Church councils and finance committees fail in their responsibilities when 
they: 

(1) Fail to adequately compensate their pastor. 

(2) Fail to relate the pastor to the society of which he is a part. 

(3) Do not review his compensation yearly. 

(4) Do not provide regular increases in salary to keep abreast of our 
changing economy.

234 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 

The Pastors' Salary Study — which has been made available to you at this 
convention — tells you where we stand within the synod, relates our synod to 
other church bodies, to other synods within the LCA, to other occupations and 
shows what progress — which is very little — has been made in the last few years. 
The figures used are average salaries in some cases and median salaries in other 
places but this difference won't bother you. 

Now just a few figures: 

Average Pastor's salary — $5,369 
Median Pastor's Salary — $5,050 

With 54,343 confirmed members, our stewardship in support of our pastors 
amounts to $16.50 per year per confirmed member or 4]/2 cents per day per 
confirmed member. 

For several weeks Ads in the Charlotte Observer have been pleading for 
brick masons. The Ad guarantees 40 hours work per week at $4.50 per 
hour. This amounts to $180 per week or $780 per month — $9,360 per year. 
By way of comparison may I add a personal note here. I am a professional en- 
gineer, employed in a management position and competing with industry for 1966 
graduates from our engineering schools. We are offering $620 per manth — 
$7,440 per year with many fine liberal fringe benefits, and other companies are 
offering more and getting the men. 

I am not suggesting that pastors' compensation should be approached on 
a competitive basis but we must be realistic and do a Christian job of caring for 
our pastors. 

We have heard in this convention — "Let George do it." In our nation we 
have seen creeping socialism suddenly engulf us and become galloping socialism. 
Surely we won't let Uncle Sam do our job — he will if we don't act as dedicated 
laymen and pastors and do what must de done." 

A round of discussion followed. Among those participating in the discussion 
were the Reverends Roy B. Setzer, J. LeGrande Mayer, John Hall, D.D., Albert 
H. Keck, Jr., D.D., Harry Robinson, Mr. G. H. Kirkpatrick, Sr., and Paul C. Rhyne 
Jr., and were of like mind in urging that this study be more than a mere study 
and commended it as a challenge to congregations for serious consideration and 
subsequent action. 

A motion that a copy of the full report be sent to lay chairmen of church 
councils of every congregation not having a lay delegate present at the con- 
vention made by Pastor John Yost, Jr., and amendments that comments by 
Mr. Jenkins accompany the study reports and that copies of the study report 
including introductory reports be sent to vice chairmen, treasurers, and pastors of 
every congregation offered by Pastors LeGrande Mayer and Harry Robinson 
respectively, were taken care of in an announcement by Dr. Ernest Misenheimer 
informing the convention that provision had already been made to send copies 
of the report to pastors, vice-chairmen and treasurers of all congregations of the 
synod, and that these reports would be accompanied by comments by Mr. 
Jenkins. 

The motion of Dr. Albert Keck, Jr. that the introductory statement by 
Mr. Jenkins be printed in the North Carolina Lutheran prevailed. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON CONDUCT OF ELECTIONS 

Chairman Paul Cobb reported for the committee, as follows: 
Ballot 3, Ticket 2 (a), Board of Trustees, Lenoir Rhyne College 

(Vote for one pastor) 
179 ballots cast 
90 votes necessary for election 

Charles E. Bernhardt, 81 
Walter N. Yount 98 (elected) 
Having received the necessary majority of votes, President Whittecar de- 
clared the Rev. Walter N. Yount duly elected. 

This completed balloting for general elections.

Report of Board of Trustees of Lutberidge 

I have the pleasure to report to you that Lutheridge Assembly and Luthe- 
ridge, Inc. had a very inspiring year. The members of the Board of Trustees 
were very faithful in the many meetings which we had. The officers elected at 
our annual meeting were: C. Miller Sigmon, President; Dr. Raymond D. 
Wood. Vice-President; Hal Kohn, Secretary; John Ketner, Treasurer. 

All committees were very effective in their work during the past year. 
Extra meetings were called and long hours were put in discussing the welfare 
of Lutheridge and putting these ideas into action. 

Many changes were made in the physical plant, and improvements were 
made in all areas of training and guidance. I reported to you last year that 
the Reverend Dexter Moser had been called as Program Director. It is with 
deep sorrow and regret that I report to you that Pastor Moser is leaving us to 
return to a parish. This is a time of trial and change for Lutheridge. We ask 
your prayers and advice as we go through this period of transition. We hope that 
all the changes will work to the glory of God. 

The financial position of Lutheridge is good. Included in this report is a 
financial statement from John Ketner, Treasurer of Lutheridge, Inc., and one 
from Dr. J. Lewis Thornburg, Treasurer of Lutheridge Assembly. 

C. MILLER SIGMON, President of the Board

for Dreher Packing Company, valued at $1,050.00, being held for Lutheridge 
by First National Bank, Morganton. 

The Rev. L. C. Bumgarner, board member, was recognized for the report. 
The report noted the resignation of the Rev. Dexter Moser, as Program Director, 
to return to the parish ministry. 

The Rev. Dr. J. Lewis Thornburg, Executive Director, was then recognized 
and heard in connection with the board's report. In posing the question, what 
are you going to do with your summer?, Dr. Thornburg suggested a week at Lu- 
theridge and then proceeded to outline the program for the summer including 
dedicatory services for new facilities. He spoke of the fourth dimension of a 
wilderness camping program as the direction in which Lutheridge is beginning 
to move. 

Reference was made to a prior action of the convention (See 1 964 Pro- 
ceedings, P. 255) calling for a promotional secretary or key person in each 
congregation to push the Lutheridge program, and urged that this be done. 

Dr. Thornburg requested a personal privilege, and moved that the sec- 
retary of synod be instructed to pen an appropriate letter of greetings to Mr. 
Clarence Whisnant, the first chairman of the Lutheridge board. 

The motion prevailed. 

On motion of Pastor Paul Conrad, the secretary of synod was instructed 
to send a letter of appreciation to Pastor Moser for his work as Program Director 
of Lutheridge. 

On motion of board member Bumgarner, the report was adopted. 



REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON AUDIT 

Sub-Committee B - On Audits of Institutions 

We have examined the audits reports for Sipes Orchard Home, North 
Carolina Lutheran Homes, Inc., Lowman Home for the Aged and Helpless, the 
Lutheran Children's Home of the South, Lenoir Rhyne College, Lutheridge and 
Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary; all necessary financial information is 
included in each report. We find that each of the above - mentioned institutions 
has been satisfactorily audited. 

We recommend: 

a. That the auditor's opinion for each institution be approved and printed 
in the minutes of the synod. 

b. That the complete audit report for each institution be placed in the 
archives of synod. 

W. A. Kluttz 
J. Max Henderlite 
Clinton Eudy, Chairman 
The report was presented by Secretary Lyerly, who moved adoption of the 
report. The report was adopted. 



240 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



Report of Committee on Historical Work 

The Committee on Historical Work comes to the convention of the Synod 
annually with a brief report of its services during the year. The last two words 
in the name of the committee could have different interpretations, but however 
they are used it is natural to conclude that some work is expected from the com- 
mittee. In giving an account of its services there is always a feeling much has 
been left undone that should have been done in the course of the year. 

The work of your committee is closely interlinked with the duties of the 
Archivist in many respects, especially in the efforts to secure and store historical 
materials of value in the life of the Synod, its Institutions, and its Congregations. 
In this report little can be credited in that area to the efforts of the Committee 
on Historical Work. The Archivist has had the greater part of responsibility in 
keeping materials and files in order. His report will give full account of his 
services in that matter. 

The duties of the committee did not require the usual number of meetings 
during the year. Only two meetings of the entire committee were held, the 
first on March 23, the second on May 28, 1965. But a number of sub-com- 
mittee meetings were held as occasions arose, and even many days were spent in 
working on materials that came into the hands of the committee in preparation 
for the publication of the book of biographies of ministers. At this time the great- 
er portion of the biographical sketches are in the hands of the printer and are 
being processed as rapidly as possible. If all goes well, we will have some of 
the finished product on display at the convention of the Synod in May, and 
later in the yecr the book will make its appearance. With a roll of around 
eight hundred and fifty ministers the task has required more time than was 
anticipated in the earlier stages, and it was found necessary to check many 
details in the life and service of a large number of the ministers, especially those 
who were in active service one hundred or more years ago. 

All who are working on the copy and proof reading are making every effort 
to get the facts that have been made available arranged in the proper order 
and just as near accurate as possible. The way has been cleared by the Executive 
Board of Synod for the printing of the book by the State Printing Company in 
Columbia, S. C, the number of volumes also to be determined by the Executive 
Board. 

The Supplement to the History of the Lutheran Church in North Carolina 
was presented at the convention of the Synod in Burlington last year. At that 
convention a large number of pastors and lay delegates in attendance purchased 
copies for their own use and took home with them additional copies to be sold in 
their home congregations. The result of this initial effort in distribution was en- 
couraging, and it is to be expected that all who took the books home with them 
will make complete payment to the office of the treasurer of the Synod, if they 
have not done so already. The remaining portion of the Supplement is stored in 
the Synod Headquarters Building in Salisbury and may be obtained in any 
number desired by ordering from the Secretary of the Synod or calling in person. 
The price of one dollar per volume barely covers the cost of printing and other 
incidental expenses. Will you, pastors and delegates, lend your assistance in 
getting this valuable little book into the homes of the membership of our con- 
gregations? 

We wish to say further that approximately four hundred copies of the 
History of the Lutheran Church in North Carolina are also stored at the Synod 
Headquarters, and can be obtained by order or personal call. The price on this 
larger book remains the same, three dollars each. It would be well to dispose of 
at least two hundred of those in store, which would leave about the same number 
for future uses in the Synod. 

Your committee wishes to continue on with its unfinished business until the 
work now in progress is satisfactorily completed, and your cooperation is most 
earnestly solicited. 

The Committee offers the following recommendations for your consideration. 

1. That the number of copies of the book on biographies be printed as authoriz- 
ed by the Executive Board of the Synod. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 241 



2. That the selling price of the book be set as near as possible at the amount 
of the cost cf printing and other incidental expenses, which will be around 
$5.00 a copy, according to preliminary estimates. 

3. That each congregation in the Synod, or some auxiliary organization, make 
a special effort to distribute the T 0-year Supplement, printed last year, so 
that the money used out of the treasury of the Synod might be rep!aced 
for other uses. 

C. N. YOUNT, Chairman 

J. WILFORD LYERLY, Secretary 

The report wcs presented by the Rev. C. N. Yount, chairman, who gave 
an up-to-date report on the financing of the 1953 History of the Lutheran 
Church in North Carolina, and of the sales of the 1963 Supplement. He re- 
ported that the total received from Supplements sold prcir to the convention was 
$567.73, and that according to records, a number of copies which were taken 
from the convention last year were still on the credit side of the ledger. 

Chairman Yount made a progress report on the new volume to contain 
some 850 biographical sketches of Lutheran ministers in North Carolina, in- 
cluding more than 150 pictures, and said that this volume had called for the 
committee's concentration and energies during the year. He informed conven- 
tion dedegates that most of the sketches are now in the printer's hands, and ex- 
pressed the hope that the new volume would be off the press in the early fall. 
He made mention of two special assignments, the life cf Adolph Nussmann, by 
Miss Ruth Blackv/elder, and that of Johann Gottfried Arndt by the Rev. George 
Shuford, He also recognized the services of the Rev. C. E. Norman as compiler 
of the sketches. 

Upon request, the series of recommendations appearing at the end of the 
report were deleted as there were no formal recommendations to offer at this 
time. 

On motion of Chairman Yount, the report was adopted. 

REPORT OF THE EXECUTIVE BOARD (continued) 

Board member Jack E. Smith was again recognized to continue a review of 
the remaining portions of the Executive Board's report, beginning with Item 
Vl-F, On Property. 

Following the running commentary by board member Smith, the report as 
a whole was opened for further discussion and questions. The report was then 
brought to a close. 

A correction was made on P. 96 of the Bulletin, showing St. Mark, instead 
of St. Luke, Charlotte, for John W. Foust, M.D. 

On motion of Pastor Marion Starr, the Report of the Executive Board as 
printed in the convention bulletin was adopted. 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE OF REFERENCE AND COUNSEL 

Committee chairman Marion Starr submitted the following items for special 
consideration and disposition: 

1. That the Rev. Floyd Trexler be granted three minutes to bring to the 
convention a matter related to Social Ministry. 

2. That the Rev. William Hall be allowed time to present a motion rela- 
tive to the addition of a statement on the Official Call Blank. 

3. That a resolution of the Church Council of Trinity Congregation, 
Rocky Mount, N. C. be heard, and that the convention determine how 
it shall be received. 

4. That the convention hear a motion of the Rev. Paul Conrad. With ref- 
erence to this motion the committee feels that, while the intent may 
be commendable, the practical procedures to put it into action would 
be difficult to carry through in time for the Kansas City Convention. 

5. That a motion, duly signed by a number of delegates to this con- 
vention, and having to do with reports to the secretary for the con- 
vention bulletin, be read and then given to the Executive Board of 
synod for study and possible implementation. 



242 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CA ROLINA SYNOD 

6. That a motion by the Rev. Gene Beck on fuller information for 
nominees to the boards of synod be referred to the Executive Board for 
study. 

1 . Jacksonville, Military Personnel, ministry to 

Recommendation 1 was adopted. 

The Rev. Floyd Trexler was given the privilege of the convention floor and 
spoke of the ministry to military personnel in Jacksonville. He informed con- 
vention delegates that the Lutheran Service Center was destroyed by fire, and 
he solicited the prayers of the delegates for peace in the world as so many 
families in Jacksonville are personally involved in the present military crisis. 

2. Official Call Blanks, Amendments to 

Recommendation 2 was adopted. 

The Rev. William Hall was heard and moved that the Executive Board of 
the North Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church in America take whatever 
steps are necessary to have inserted in the "Official Call" blank, following the 
paragraph on salary and benefits, the following: 

"We agree to release our pastor week/s every years 

with salary in order that he may continue his study and show himself approved 
unto God." 

Pastor Karl Park moved an amendment by putting a comma after the words 
"unto God", and adding "and that this not be considered vacation time". 

The amendment was adopted. 

The motion as amended was adopted. 

The motion was further amended by an amendment offered by Mr. R. L. 
Lineberry "that there be additional space on the call blank for fringe benefits". 

The motion as amended was adopted. 

A motion of reference that this matter be referred to the Executive Board 
for study and report back to the next convention was lost. 

3. Trinity, Rocky Mount, resolution from 

The recommendation of the committee that the resolution from Trinity, 
Rocky Mount, be heard, and that the convention determine the manner in 
which it be received, was adopted. 

The resolution was presented as follows: 

Adopted by the Church Council, Trinity Lutheran Church, Rocky Mount, 
N. C. May 2, 1966 

WHEREAS, the National Council of Churches of Christ in the United States 
of America (hereafter referred to as the National Council of Churches) and/or its 
agents, purports to represent 40 million Protestant and Orthodox church mem- 
bers, yet, in fact, it is not specifically authorized to do so, and 

WHEREAS, the National Council of Churches in our opinion has far ex- 
ceeded its ecclesiastical role in speaking out as the official voice of Protestant- 
ism in America on such secular and political matters as federal aid to education, 
right to work laws, ethical considerations of the 1965 steel dispute, the seat- 
ing of Red China in the United Nations, the war in Viet Nam, and 

WHEREAS, one or more individuals, vested with leadership responsibili- 
ties in the National Council of Churches, has been identified as having Com- 
munist-front affiliations and/or sympathies, and 

WHEREAS, the National Council of Churches hes been e divisive influence, 
alienating many of the faithful parishioners and being a deterrent to the at- 
tracting of new church members, and 

WHEREAS, we, the members of Trinity Lutheran Church Council of Rocky 
Mount, N. C. deem it unwise and unfair for the national and state church 
leaders to pledge our support to the National Council of Churches as it is now 
constituted. 

NOW, THEREFORE, be it resolved that the Council of Trinity Lutheran 
Church of Rocky Mount, N. C. does hereby voice these objections to this con- 
vention of the North Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church in America and ask 
that the Lutheran Church in America to either withdraw completely from the Na- 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 243 

tional Council of Churches or to withdraw temporarily until such time as the 
National Council of Churches corrects these objectional practices. 

The above resolution has been approved by the necessary majority of the 
Church Council. 

Leroy McMahan, Secretary 

President Whittecar outlined possible procedures from the constitution of 
the church in receiving and disposing of communications addressed to the synod 
from any of its congregations. He said that if it were forwarded to the conven- 
tion of the church through the synod it would take the form of a memorial, which 
would call for its defense by the synod's delegation. Another procedure would be 
for the resolution to be referred back to the congregation to appeal directly to 
the church through its Executive Council. 

Participating in the discussion were pastors Roy Setzer, K. Y. Huddle, Floyd 
Trexler, John Cobb, Robert Dasher, Hoyle Whiteside, and LeGrande Mayer. 

Pastor Robert Dasher moved that the resolution be returned to the con- 
gregation for direct referral to the Executive Council under the provisions as set 
forth in Article Six, Section 4, of the LCA constitution. The motion was sec- 
onded by Pastor John Cobb, who added that Dr. George Harkins has a wealth 
of information to share with congregations confronted with such problems. 

At this point, Pastor Hoyle Whiteside requested clarification as to whether 
the motion meant returning the resolutioon to the congregation without either 
the approval or disapproval of the convention. 

Mr. Julian W. Johnson, delegate from Trinity, Rocky Mount, was given the 
privilege of the floor, and preferred referring the resolution to the Executive 
Board and/or the representatives to the LCA convention. 

Pastor LeGrande Mayer moved a substitute motion that the Rocky Mount 
resolution be referred to the Executive Board of the synod for action and answer. 

Speaking in favor of the substitute motion, Pastor Floyd Trexler advocated 
looking at all the facts in the case, saying that it is easy to make charges, but 
more difficult to substantiate them. He suggested launching an educational pro- 
gram to get a clear perspective and picture of what the National Council is 
doing and the areas in which it is serving. 

The substitute motion prevailed. 

4. Position Statements, Church Councils, presentation to 

The recommendation of the committee was given consideration, and the 
Rev. Paul Conrad was given the privilege of presenting his motion, as follows: 
"That this convention direct the secretary of synod to compose a 
questionnaire consisting of all position statements which the delegates 
to the forthcoming LCA convention will be asked to approve, and mail 
this questionnairs to all pastors of the synod as soon as possible; 
That the pastors review the questionnaire with their respective church 
councils, record their sentiments, and return the questionnaire to the 
secretary; and 

That the secretary tabulate the results of the returned questionnaires 
and inform our synodical delegates to the LCA convention, and the 
congregations of the congregations' sentiments on all views." 
Pastor Conrad supported his motion by referring to the gap existing be- 
tween the delegation and congregations and felt that this motion was a way 
of bridging the gap, and letting the delegates know at least how the congrega- 
tions feel about these matters. 

Pastors T. C. Plexico and Olin Swicegood spoke against the motion as in- 
fluencing the delegation, and expressing their confidence in the leadership rep- 
resenting the synod. 

Pastor Gaither Blackwelder and Attorney Kenneth spoke in favor of 
the motion as being desirable to inform the delegation of the constituency's 
views. 

The motion was put to a vote and prevailed. 

5. Pre-conventeon bulletin, earlier publication of, motion for 

The recommendation of the committee was considered, and the motion 
with the necessary signatures was introduced as follows by Chairman Starr: 



244 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



"INASMUCH as the pastors and lay delegates are expected to have 
read the bulletin of synod before the opening of the convention of 
synod, and as the lay delegates are expected to intellingently represent 
their congregations, BE IT RESOLVED that reports and statistics be 
made available to the secretary of synod early enough to allow the 
bulletin of synod to be in the hands of pastors and lay delegates one 
month prior to convention." 

Speaking to the motion and commenting on its merits, Pastor Everett 
Home described it as a move toward bridging the gap between congregations 
and conventions which exists due to the inability of congregations to have know- 
ledge of and express their views regarding issues facing synodical conventions, 
and thus through their delegates be able to vote more intellingently on items 
presented for action. 

On motion of the committee and by vote of the convention, the motion 
was referred to the Executive Board for possible implementation. 

6. Nominees to boards, odditionai information for 

Acting upon the recommendation of the committee, the motion by the Rev. 
Gene Beck was presented, as follows: 

"That the Executive Board appoint a committee to conduct a study 
with the purpose of determining if a more suitable means of presenting 
the qualifications of nominees for boards might be found, and if found, 
that such means be put into practice at the 1967 convention." 
The motion prevailed. 

7. Lutheran Church Men, strengthening of, resolution for 

A resolution favoring the continuation and strengthening of Lutheran 
Church Men as an axuiliary, was read by the committee chairman Marion Starr, 
as follows: 

"Whereas the Lutheran Church in America at the Kansas City Conven- 
tion will be faced with a decision as to whether or not the auxiliary 
of Lutheran Church men should be continued on a national basis, 
Be it resolved, as an expression of the consensus of the congregations 
of the N. C. Synod and as guidance to this synod's delegates to the 
LCA convention, that we favor the continuation and the strengthening 
of the men's auxiliary of the church believing that the witness to the 
church's mission, the sponsorship of the scouting program throughout 
the nation, and the common concerns and challenges before the man- 
power of the LCA in these vital days can best be served not by the 
abandonment of the LCM, but by its rejuvination and church wide sup- 
port." 

Pastor C. Lee Shipton requested that the resolution be acted upon by the 
convention. 

Speaking in favor of the resolution were Mr. Frank Jenkins and Mr. Hunter 
Rudisili. 

The resolution was adopted. 

President Whittecar recognized committee chairman Marion Starr for the 
final report of the Committee on Reference and Counsel. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON REFERENCE AND COUNSEL 

The Committee on Reference and Counsel offers the following resolutions: 

1 . That we express our deep appreciation to the Rev. G. Dwight Conrad, 
pastor, the Rev. Dr. L. Boyd Hamm, assistant to the pastor, and the 
members of Bethany Lutheran Church, Hickory, for their loving labors 
in preparation for and in their ministrations to the needs of the dele- 
gates, visitors and staff to this convention of synod. 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 245 



2. That we note with gratitude the hospitality of the president, faculty, 
staff and students of Lenoir Rhyne College extended in the opening of 
the facilities of the school, providing a delicious meal, end inspiring 
the delegates with the presentation of the seventy-five year span of 
history of the institution; and that we rejoice with them in this marking 
of the Diamond Jubilee. 

3. That we express appreciation to the committee on Press, Radio and Tele- 
vision for their coordination of the excellent news coverage of the 
sessions of the convention; and that this committee be asked to express 
on our behalf appreciation to the local and state news media for carrying 
stories from the various sessions. 

4. That we express appreciation to the L.C.A. Representative, Mrs. Ruth 
G. Horting, L.H.D. for bringing to us so enthusiastically the work of the 
Church at large. 

5. That we assure the officers and staff of the synod of our gratitude for 

their devoted service both during the past synodical year and during 
this convention. 

6. That we express our appreciation to the chaplain, the Rev. R. Douglas 
Fritz, for his inspiring leadership in the devotional services; and 
to Prof. Harry Wells and the choir of Bethany Church for their in- 
valuable assistance in the music of the services. 

7. That we hereby thank Secretary Lyerly for his meaningful message at the 
Memorial Service at the Wednesday afternoon devotional period. 

8. That we note with appreciation the presence ond the greetings of the 
representatives of the auxiliaries and institutions of the synod. 

9. That we express our thankfulness to the Lutheran Laymen's Movement 
for its focus on stewardship through the leaders it has provided in our 
midst in a number of recent experiences. 

10. That a copy of these resolutions be sent by the secretary to those who 
are remembered in the various parts of this report.

60 PR OCEEDIN GS OF THE NORTH CAROL INA SYNOD 

PROCEEDINGS 

of the 

Sixth Annual Convention of The 

North Carolina Synod 

of the 

Luther an Church in America 

OPENING SERVICE 

(Monday Morning, May 1, 1967, 10:00 A.M.) 

The North Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church in America opened its 
Sixth Annual Convention (the One Hundred and Sixty Third annual convention of 
the North Carolina Synod and its predecessor bodies since 1803) in the Evangeli- 
cal Lutheran Church of St. James, Concord, N. C, the Rev. Thurmond C. 
Plexicj, pastor, Monday Morning, May 1, at 10 a. m. 

The Service (First Setting), including the Brief Order of Public Confession 
and the service of Holy Communion, was conducted by the Rev. Wilford Lyerly, 
secretary of synod. 

Participating in the service were the Rev. George R. Whittecar, D.D., presi- 
dent of synod; the Rev. Ernest L. Misenheimer, D. D., assistant to the president; 
the Rev. Thurmond C. Plexico, pastor of the convention church and Arthur 
Honeychurch, M. S. M., organist. 

The sermon, delivered by President Whittecar, was based on the text from 
John 1:14; "The Word became flesh and dwelt among us . . . We beheld His 
Glory". A clear reference to the act of Incarnation, the president pointed out that 
the Christian's calling is to take the invisible and make it visible to the con- 
temporary world. This we can do, he said, by dedicated Christian living and by 
adapting our programs and ministries in such a way that the gospel and our 
faith become flesh and blood. This is the kind of incarnation that Christians 
and the church as the body of Christ are to become actively involved, the presi- 
dent concluded. 

The offering was designated for the Campus Appeal

70 PROCE EDI NGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYN OD 

Report of the President 

Brethren in Christ Jesus: 

I am grateful to God for the privilege of making this report to the synod 
of my stewardship as President. I am continually grateful for the honor of the 
office and the confidence of my brethren in the ministry and the representatives 
of the congregations for entrusting this responsibility to me. I am increasingly 
aware of my own shortcomings as the demands of the office continue to be with 
me from month to month and year to year. At the same time, I appreciate the 
support that has been given me by the ministers and congregations of the synod 
and those who have been associated with me in boards and committees and on 
the staff of the synod. 

I have tried from day to day and week to week to represent the synod as 
required by the constitution in the various relationships that we have. I have 
attended and participated in meetings of the Boards of Trustees of the Lutheran 
Theological Southern Seminary, Lenoir Rhyne College, Lutheran Children's Home 
of the South, Lutheridae, Inc., North Carolina Lutheran Homes, and Lowman 
Home. I have participated in two meetings in each district of the synod and was 
a member of the delegation of the synod to the Biennial Convention of the 
Lutheran Church in America at Kansas City, June 21 - 29, and also to the North 
Carolina Council of Churches. I have participated in the dedication of churches, 
the blessings of parsonages, site blessings and groundbreakings for churches and 
parsonages and in miscellaneous services of blessings or dedications as I have been 
able to arrange my time, or, if not cble to do so myself, have arranged for other 
representation by members of the staff or officers of the synod. 

I have tried to give oversight to the congregations in their particular needs. 
I have appointed vice pastors when necessary and have counseled with church 
councils and representatives of the congregations in the process of calling pastors 
to serve them. I have installed pastors when they have accepted calls to con- 
gregations or have arranged for others to do so. I have ordained, on the authoriza- 
tion of the synod, candidates for the ministry. I have tried to fulfill in every way 
the responsibilities laid upon me by the constitution of the synod and the con- 
stitution and by-laws of the church. 

I rejoice in the manifestations of strength in the church as we see it in 
North Carolina. V/e are engaged in a steady advance on the Home Mission front. 
In the last four years we have welcomed into our fellowship ten new congrega- 
tions established by the Board of American Missions with synodical cooperation. 
We have seen 15 first unit mission churches built or in process of being built. 
The Home Mission Foundation continues to serve a useful and blessed purpose 
as an agency to assist in financing such buildings. 

In spite of hesitation on the part of some, cur people responded in 1966 with 
their largest contributions in their history for the program of the church. We 
reached the highest percentage figure in apportionment payments since the 
orgcn : zation of The Lutheran Church in America in 1962. For this firm witness 
to our faith and continuing loyalty, I am most grateful. 

A consistently strong devotion to the church and its program prevails among 
our ministry. Our men are faithful to their callings. Our lay people as a whole 
are firm in their faith and manifest a strong loyalty to the church. 

THE MANIFESTO 

This is the year of the Manifesto on "God's Call to the Church in Each 
Place." We shall be giving particular attention to a study of the ways in which 



_____ LUT H ERAN CH U RCH IN AMERICA /M 

our congregational life can be renewed and strengthened as we respond to the 
call which has been issued by the 1966 convention of the church. I trust that 
each congregation will take advantage of the opportunity to engage in this study 
under the leadership of its pastor and church council and that each may gain 
new insights as to ways in wh.ch it can make its witness in its own community, 
and in its relationships to other congregations of the church, more effective. 

450th REFORMATION ANNIVERSARY 

This is the year of the 450th anniversary of the Reformation. We shall find 
opportunity during the course of the next few months to recall our heritage from 
the past and to relate it to our present day world. Working in cooperation with 
other Lutheran Church bodies, and indeed with other Christians of various tradi- 
tions, we should take advantage of the opportunities that this anniversary will 
present to bear witness to our faith among ourselves and throughout our com- 
munities, our state, and our nation. 

THE KANSAS CITY CONVENTION 

The synod was represented at the 1966 convention of the Lutheran Church 
in America at Kansas City, June 21-29, by its full allotment of 1 1 clergymen and 
1 1 laymen. The delegation was comprised of those elected at the 1965 convention 
of synod with the following adjustments: The Rev. Clyde Misenheimer in place of 
Dr. Voigt R. Cromer, the Rev. G. Cwight Conrad in place of the Rev. Hugh E. 
Bumgartner, Professor G. R. Patterson in place of Conrad B. Wessell, Jr., Miss 
Mary Stamy in place of Mr. Wallace Jorgenson, and Mr. W. A. Kluttz in place 
of Mrs. Wilford Wolfgang. The latter two were appointed by the President after 
it had been determined that no elected alternate was available to replace the 
designated persons who could not attend. Full report of the actions of the con- 
vention have been made in the church periodicals and will be available in detail 
in the minutes of the convention. 

APPRECIATION 

I wish to record here my appreciation of the faithful and effective service 
of the men and women who have been associated with me in the life and work 
of the synod during the past year, particularly those who are officers and staff 
of the synod and employed at the Church House in Salisbury. I refer particularly 
to Secretary J. Wilford Lyerly, Dr. Ernest L. Misenheimer, Assistant to the Presi- 
dent, Mr. Charles S. Heilig, Treasurer, and the Rev. Brady Y. Faggart, Jr., Secre- 
tary of Christian Education until his resignation December 31, 1966, to become 
Executive Director at Lutheridge. I also record my appreciation of the faithful and 
effective services as office secretaries of Mrs. 0. L. Casey, Mrs. Grace Kline, 
Mrs. Charles Roberts, Mrs. Gray Hampton, the Treasurer's bookkeeper, and our 
housekeeper, Mrs. Mildred Brown. These faithful servants of the church have 
made it possible for the synod to serve the ministers, congregations, and institu- 
tions during the past year. 

Following is a listing of official acts that I have performed or have appointed 
others to perform, ministers received and dismissed, changes of pastorate, installa- 
tions of pastors, vice pastor appointments and other details.

GEORGE R. WHITTECAR 

Report of The Assistant to The President 

Dear Brethren in Christ: 

It has been a joy to serve with pastors and laymen, with officers and staff 
of the synod, and with members of operational committees as together we have 
tried to extend the ministry of each congregation at home and abroad. As I re- 
view the work in my office since the last convention of synod, I must say that it 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA 81 



has been "our busiest year yet". It has also been a year of progress and ac- 
complishments for which we can all be grateful to God in whose name we witness 
and for whose sake we serve. Many, many thanks to each busy pastor who has 
rescheduled his work in order to serve as a missioner in an area evangelism mis- 
sion and to pastors and laymen alike who have served so well on the special 
Stewardship Task Force, on synod committees, and on special assignments in be- 
half of us all. It has been a joy to be on the team with you in the capacity of 
Assistant to the President with a portfolio including such areas of concern as 
stewardship, evangelism and social ministry. 

Since many of the activities in which I have engaged are reported by the 
Stewardship Committee, the Evangelism Committee, the Social Ministry Com- 
mittee, and the President of Synod, I will be brief in this report to avoid duplica- 
tion and overlapping. 

ACTIVITIES SINCE THE LAST CONVENTION OF SYNOD 

My activities as Assistant to the President can be enumerated under the 
following seven headings. 

1. ADMINISTRATIVE DUTIES AS ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT: Since the 
last convention of synod, I have participated in the following official acts: 
ten installations; one Corner-Stone Laying, one Parsonage Dedication; six 
Anniversary Services; two Ground-breaking Services; synodical representative 
at six congregational meetings; represented the President of Synod at 14 
meetings and conferences. In addition, I have had the opportunity to preach 
56 sermons and to deliver 12 addresses. I have met regularly with the three 
operational committees to which I am assigned as staff worker. I have also 
met with many other committees during the year on the assignment of the 
President of Synod, and have held a countless number of conferences with 
individual pastors and lay leaders. I have reported regularly to the Executive 
Board providing pertinent studies and information. I serve on two Executive 
Sub-Committees; Budget and Finance, and Conventions. 

My office is assigned the responsibility of arranging for guest preachers 
each Sunday in vacant parishes as well as for parish pastors who need a 
supply. This service, while time consuming, seems to meet a real need. Con- 
gregational vice chairmen and others have expressed appreciation for it. In 
my office, I serve as purchasing agent for supplies and equipment for the 
synod. I review all expense vouchers, bills, and invoices which come to the 
Church House and approve them for payment by the treasurer of synod. 

I attended the LCA Kansas City Convention June 21-29, 1966 as a 
visitor with expenses paid by the synod. Many thanks for making this ex- 
perience possible for me. 

I have served with Dr. Whittecar as co-director of the Campus follow- 
up. I have edited the campus News Letter and distributed it with the monthly 
issue of the Stewardship, Evangelism, Social Ministry Bulletin; distributed a 
sheet showing the remittances of the congregations to Campus; designed, 
printed, and distributed 30,000 copies of a four page, three-color brochure 
to tell the Campus story; handled assignments for speakers in the interest 
of campus in the congregations; attended numerous meetings to formulate 
"Campus" plans and to review "Campus" progress. 

My office has been responsible for taking copy on Questions and Answ- 
ers on NCCCUSA provided by the President of Synod, arranging it in booklet 
form, printing and distributing 3500 copies as requested by the congrega- 
tions. Also copies of the Salary Aid Study distributed at the 1 966 Conven- 
tion of Synod were supplied to each congregation. 

The District Deans have named the Assistant to the President to serve 
as co-worker with the President of Svnod to arrange retreats for introducing 
the "Manifesto" materials to pastors and lay-leaders. 

My office assisted representatives of LLM to plan a series of LLM en- 
listment meetings in the synod during November, 1966. 

2. L.C.A. CONFERENCES: Because of duties here in the synod directing evange- 
lism missions and overnight retreats for host pastors and missioners, I was 
unable to attend the LCA Social Ministry Conference at Dearborn, Michigan, 
September 27-29, 1966, and the LCA Stewardship Conference at Pocano 



82 PROCE EDIN GS OF T HE NORTH CAROLIN A SYNOD 

Manor, Pa. October 24-27, 1966. However, I attended the LCA Evangelism 
Conference at Dearborn, Michigan, January 10-12, 1967, and participated 
in it as one of the group leaders. 

3. EVANGELISM: My activities in the area of evangelism include the follow- 
ing: planned the agenda for two meetings of the Operational Committee on 
Evangelism; presided over three meetings of the Carolinas' Evangelism Con- 
ference Planning Committee; directed two area "Witness Where You Are" 
Evangelism Missions in the Southwestern and Eastern Districts which included 
arranging for 52 missioners, directing four area briefing sessions and two 
overnight retreats for pastors and missioners; prepared suggested agenda and 
program for presentation at the congregational program consultations in 
connection with the district meetings. 

The "Contact and Referral Service" to help keep up with our moving 
Lutherans is under my supervision. We send out an average of 50 names 
and addresses each month to pastors advising them of Lutherans who have 
moved into their area. Our sources for names and addresses are (1) The 
Lutheran (2) Other Synods' Referral Services (3) The LCA Referral Service 
(4) Lists of non-resident inactive members received from our N. C. Synod 
pastors. 

During the year I have had the opportunity to counsel with pastors and 
committees regarding congregational programs in evangelism. I have pre- 
pared, tabulated, and evaluated the Evangelism Progress Reports and have 
provided the LCA Evangelism Commission with a full report on the N. C. 
Synod's plans and progress in evangelism. 

4. STEWARDSHIP: One of the most satisfying experiences in Stewardship the 
past year was the Stewardship Task Force visits in the congregatoins of the 
synod. It was my opportunity to mobilize the task force consisting of 43 
pastors and 43 laymen, assign each pastor-layman team five church councils 
and stewardship committees to visit; develop the suggested presentation for 
the meetings; and direct four briefing sessions preparatory to this "Calling 
to set the work forward". 

It has been my privilege to direct the Every Member Response in two 
congregations; Pilgrim, Lexington, and Our Saviour, Southern Pines. I made 
four visits to each of these congregations meeting with the council, the EMR 
General Committee, and the Every Member Visit Teams. I also assisted six 
other congregations with their EMR program making one visit to each church. 

In other stewardship activities I designed, printed, and distributed 30 
thousand copies of the brochure showinq how each $100 of 1967 apportion- 
ment is spent; designed, printed, and distributed apportionment report cards 
picturing each congregation's apportionment giving record over a six year 
period; prepared stewardship studies for congregations and for the synod, 
for use by the stewardship committee, the Executive Board, and new pastors 
in the synod. 

My office has had the responsibility for computing the 1967 apportion- 
ments for the congregations of synod and of preparing the tables for the 
minutes of synod showing how each congregation's apportionment is divided 
among the budgeted causes. 

I am serving as co-ordinator for the Southeastern Regional Stewardship 
Conference at Lutheridge October 17-19, 1967. 

5. SOCIAL MINISTRY: Serving as staff worker for the Social Ministry Com- 
mittee, I have prepared the agenda for and attended three meetings of the 
committee; prepared guide sheets, showing social ministry concerns which 
were used as discussion starters and take home items in connection with the 
spring district "Congregational Program Consultations"; represented the Pres- 
ident of Synod at four meetings of the Advisory Committee for the Lutheran 
Institutional Chaplain, Durham Area; presided over meeting with Missouri 
Synod and American Lutheran Church representatives to appoint stand-by 
and contact pastoral representatives at the 33 state supported social ministry 
institutions and notified pastors and institutions of these appointments; at- 
tended the Church Conference on Peace in Charlotte, and the N. C. Good 
Neighbor Council's Conference on the "Unmet Needs of the Tar Heel Negro" 
in Durham; answered numerous inquiries from congregational chairmen con- 
cerning social ministry opportunities in the congregation; prepared report on 



LUTHERAN CHURCH IN A MERIC A 83 

Lutheran Institutional Chaplaincy Program in Durham for the Board of Social 
Ministry of the Lutheran Church in America; supervised printing and dis- 
tribution of David Coltrane's address, "On Future of Race Relations in 
N. C." to all pastors in synod. 

6. JOINT STEWARDSHIP, EVANGELISM, SOCIAL MINISTRY PROJECTS: 

a. The triennial Stewardship, Evangelism, Social Ministry School held at 
Lenoir Rhyne College, July 29-30 with an enrollment of over 400 was 
under the direction of my office. Program, participants, publicity, pre- 
registration, and room assignments were under my supervision. 

b. Every month seven people in each congregation receive the Stewardship, 
Evangelism, Social Ministry Bulletin which I edit. 

c. The annual Workshop for New Pastors and their Wives, sponsored by 
Operational Committees and Auxiliaries, held last year on October 31 and 
November 1, is planned and directed through my office. 

d. Annual Progress Reports in Stewardship, Evangelism, and Social Ministry 
are designed, printed, distributed, tabulated, and evaluated in my office. 

e. Evangelism and Social Ministry personnel are cooperating in another 
join Evangelism Conference sponsored by the North and South Carolina 
Synods and scheduled for January 29-30, 1968 at St. Mark's, Char- 
lotte. I serve as chairman of the 16 member planning committee. 

7. VICE-PASTOR: It has been my opportunity to serve as vice-pastor of Salem, 
Salisbury, for the last ten months. The four vice pastor appointments which 
I have had over a four year period enable me to keep abreast of parish 
activities and problems and to better plan for stewardship, evangelism, and 
social ministry activities in the congregations of synod. As vice-pastor of 
Salem, I have preached 18 sermons at Sunday morning services, conducted 
eight Lenten and Holy Week services, administered Holy Communion at 
seven services; taught the confirmation class each week for seven months; 
attended council meetings and LCM meetings; conducted five funerals, three 
baptismal services and performed two marriages; made a countless number 
of sick calls at hospitals and in homes; and conducted counselling sessions. 

CONCLUSION 

All in all, it has been an interesting and fruitful year in the office of the 
Assistant to the President. The variety of assignments, the contacts with church 
leaders throughout North Carolina and the Lutheran Church in America, and the 
splendid response of our people to the challenges of the day have given me a 
spiritually satisfying year. I only hope that the work through my office as I have 
endeavored to make the resources of synod and the LCA available to church 
workers in our 200 congregations has been of help and encouragement. Sug- 
gestions for improvements are always welcome at my desk as we want to be of 
all possible service to our conaregations. 

A snecial word of aoDreciation aoes to the Executive Board and to the Presi- 
dent of Synod, Dr| George R. Whittecar, under whose direction I work for their 
helD and encouraaement as I have endeavored to carry forward the responsibilities 
of this office. I want to thank also the Secretary of Synod, the Treasurer of Synod, 
the Secretary of Christian Education, and the secretaries and bookkeeper at the 
Church House for all they've done to help in this work which I have described. 
It's aood to be a Dart of this team whose goal is to "set the work forward". Let's 
pray for one another that even more can be accomplished in our work together 
for the Lord and for His Church during 1967. Amen.

Report of District Deans 

CENTRAL DISTRICT 

The Central District has held two meetings since the last meeting of the 
synod. Attendance at both was excellent. The fall meeting was held at St. Mark, 
Salisbury, October 17, 1966. The day's activities were begun with the Administra- 
tion of Holy Communion to pastors and delegates. The preacher for the occasion 



84 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SYNOD 



was the Reverend Howard A. Alsdorf, missionary to Japan, who came as a repre- 
sentative of the Board of World Missions. 

The District Dean, the Reverend Donald E. Hanberry, served as Liturgist; 
the District Secretary, the Reverend Robert L. Troutman, served as Lector, and 
the Synod President, the Reverend George R. Whittecar, D.D. served as Celebrant. 

Immediately following the communion service, the meeting was called to 
order and the reports of the various operational committees along with the State 
of the Church Report by the Synod President were received. Following a refreshing 
noontime meal served by the ladies of St. Mark's, the afternoon session was 
begun. The program was presented by the Reverend Joseph D. Glass, Ph.D., of 
the Lenoir Rhyne college faculty. Dr. Glass presented a paper on confirmation in 
the Lutheran Church and led a discussion. The meeting was closed with prayer 
by the Chaplain, the Reverend Roy L. Trexler, host pastor. 

The Spring Meeting was held at Wittenberg, Granite Quarry, January 24 
1967, 7:30-9:30 P.M. A District Dean and Secretary were elected for four yea: 
terms. After spirited balloting, the Reverend Donald E. Hanberry was re-elected 
Dean, and the Reverend Robert L. Troutman was re-elected Secretary. Program 
consultations were held in the five operational committee areas. One of the high- 
lights was the showing of the film "A Time For Burning" which was seen by 
the Social Ministry Section and pastors and delegates. 

Cabinet meetings were held October 3, 1966 at St. John's, Salisbury, and 
on January 4, 1967 at Haven, Salisbury. 

These were planning sessions for the upcoming fall and spring meetings 
of the district and for the consideration of other district affairs.

EASTERN DISTRICT 

Two meetings of the Eastern District have been held since last convention 
of synod. With the reception of Living Word, Laurinburg, into membership of 
synod the Eastern District new claims twenty congregations in its membership. Of 
these, fourteen are involved as part of our mission program in some way. 

The Fall meeting of 1966 was held October 1 1 , at Christus Victor, Fayette- 
ville, and was well attended. The Service with Holy Communion was held in the 
morning. Guest preacher for the Communion Service was the Reverend Howard A.

the afternoon and the session also heard a paper on "Confirmation" by the 
Reverend Dr. Joseph Glass of the Department of Religion at Lenoir Rhyne College. 
At this meeting Mr. J. A. Rhyne was elected to the operational committee on 
Stewardship to fill the unexpired term of Mr. C. B. Shulenberger, deceased. Rev. 
Charles McCombs had previously been oppcinted to the operational committee 
on Social Ministry. 

The Spring meeting of 1967 was held at Good Shepherd, Goldsboro, January 
22 as a consultation type meeting. A large attendance was registered and high 
interest and enthusiasm marked this meeting. Church councils and committees 
of congregations are finding a great amount of help and stimulating material to 
be had at this type of meeting. 

Officers elected for the District are: Dean, the Reverend John D. Mauney, 
Jr.; Secretary, the Reverend Robert Dasher. 

District auxiliaries have met regularly under the leadership of the follow-

vice-pastor. The meeting opened with the celebration of Holy Communion at 
which service the Rev. Howard A. Alsdorf, representing the Board of World 
Missions, delivered the sermon. 

Following The Service, operational committee reports were presented. Dr. 
George R. Whittecar, president of synod, brought greetings and his State of the 
Church report. He pointed out that a new mission is being developed at the

Research Triangle Area near Durham under the leadership of the Rev. Floyd E. 
Sides. 

In the afternoon, Dr. Joseph D. Glass, a member of the Lenoir Rhyne Col-

The second meeting was held January 25, 1967, at St. John, Asheboro, the

tives to view the movie, "A Time for Burning." 

A meeting of the District Cabinet was held December 7, 1 966, fo
